Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1992 Oldsmobile 88 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check.

During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 88’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 88) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Oldsmobile 88 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Oldsmobile 88? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Oldsmobile 88? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Oldsmobile 88 engines.
  • Can Oldsmobile dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Oldsmobile 88, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
