This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Oldsmobile themselves.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Custom Cruiser's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Custom Cruiser 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 Custom Cruiser 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Custom Cruiser stranded. Your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

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 1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.
