What to Know About 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Oldsmobile Aurora to last as long as possible. With proactive 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Aurora maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora!

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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Aurora running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Oldsmobile Aurora Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. 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.

Could your 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora 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 Aurora may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Oldsmobile Aurora battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

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 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora engine. See Oldsmobile's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1999 Aurora in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Oldsmobile Aurora can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Oldsmobile Aurora 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 Aurora's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Oldsmobile Aurora services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Oldsmobile Aurora’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Oldsmobile Aurora? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too.

  • When should I switch my Oldsmobile Aurora to high mileage oil? If your Oldsmobile Aurora has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
