How often should I service my 1990 Mercury Topaz?
You want your Mercury Topaz to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Topaz could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Topaz maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1990 Mercury Topaz!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mercury themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Topaz's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1990 Mercury Topaz problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Mercury Topaz for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Topaz’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1990 Mercury Topaz? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Topaz may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mercury Topaz battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mercury Topaz won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1990 Mercury Topaz engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1990 Topaz. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Mercury Topaz.
Routine upkeep for your Mercury Topaz suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Mercury Topaz steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Mercury Topaz's steering and suspension system.
Without routine Mercury Topaz maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.
