What to Know About 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Oldsmobile Aurora to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Aurora has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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. Just follow your 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora maintenance schedule!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. 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 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Oldsmobile Aurora Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Aurora’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora 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 Aurora 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 Aurora 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 Aurora could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora running newer, longer. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 Aurora, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Oldsmobile Aurora can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Oldsmobile Aurora suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Oldsmobile Aurora's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Oldsmobile Aurora 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.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora. Get answers to common Oldsmobile Aurora maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Oldsmobile Aurora? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Oldsmobile Aurora need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Oldsmobile Aurora engines.
  • Can Oldsmobile dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Oldsmobile Aurora to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
