Take care of your Oldsmobile Aurora and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Aurora. 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 Aurora, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora!

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; 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 Aurora's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Oldsmobile Aurora

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora and our technicians will jump right in 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Aurora. 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 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Aurora may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Oldsmobile Aurora battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 Aurora won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora engine.
