What to Know About 1993 Oldsmobile 98 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Oldsmobile 98, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your 98 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 98 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1993 Oldsmobile 98!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Oldsmobile themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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 98's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1993 Oldsmobile 98 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Oldsmobile 98

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1993 Oldsmobile 98 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 98. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1993 Oldsmobile 98? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Oldsmobile 98 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 Oldsmobile 98 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1993 Oldsmobile 98 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1993 98. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1993 Oldsmobile 98? We can help with that, too!

That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Oldsmobile 98 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.

If you fall behind on routine Oldsmobile 98 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.
