Your Guide to 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada Scheduled Maintenance
You want your Oldsmobile Bravada to last as long as possible.
With the right maintenance at the right time,
you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Bravada.
But how do you know what service to get and when?
There's no need to guess when it's time to get Bravada maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong.
It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada!
Oldsmobile knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind.
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
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 Bravada's life,
keep you safer on the road,
and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada problems in the future.

and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada?
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.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Bravada) stuck in the middle of nowhere.
Your Oldsmobile Bravada won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

When should I have Oldsmobile Bravada alignment checked?
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 should I switch my Oldsmobile Bravada to high mileage oil?
If your Oldsmobile Bravada 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!
Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Oldsmobile?
It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Oldsmobile Bravada, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
