Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Oldsmobile Alero Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2004 Oldsmobile Alero to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Could your 2004 Oldsmobile Alero be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Alero may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Alero) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Oldsmobile Alero won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2004 Oldsmobile Alero's engine run smoother. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 2004 Alero, check out the information table at the beginning 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2004 Oldsmobile Alero.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Oldsmobile Alero can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Oldsmobile Alero steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement.
