What to Know About 1987 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Custom Cruiser could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Custom Cruiser 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 1987 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Custom Cruiser perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1987 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser. 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). 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser running newer, longer. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 Custom Cruiser, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1987 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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 the appropriate Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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 Custom Cruiser’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it.
