What to Know About 2003 Oldsmobile Alero Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Oldsmobile Alero, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Alero. 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 Alero, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2003 Oldsmobile Alero!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Oldsmobile, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Alero's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2003 Oldsmobile Alero problems.

Overview of Essential Oldsmobile Alero Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2003 Oldsmobile Alero 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Alero’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2003 Oldsmobile Alero? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Oldsmobile Alero 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 Oldsmobile Alero could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2003 Oldsmobile Alero's engine run smoother. See Oldsmobile's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2003 Alero in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2003 Oldsmobile Alero.

Maintaining your Oldsmobile Alero steering and suspension 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Oldsmobile Alero steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Oldsmobile Alero's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Oldsmobile Alero maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Oldsmobile Alero cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Oldsmobile Alero radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too.
