Your Guide to 1995 Oldsmobile 98 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Oldsmobile 98 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 98. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 98, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1995 Oldsmobile 98!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Oldsmobile, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 98 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1995 Oldsmobile 98 problems.

Bring your 1995 Oldsmobile 98 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 98’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1995 Oldsmobile 98 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 98 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 Oldsmobile 98 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 98 stranded. Your Oldsmobile 98 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
