Here’s Why 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Custom Cruiser could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Custom Cruiser, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Oldsmobile themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 Custom Cruiser. 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 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 Custom Cruiser could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 Custom Cruiser. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.

High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
