Here’s Why 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Custom Cruiser. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Oldsmobile, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 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 Custom Cruiser running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser problems.

Overview of Essential Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser engine. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.

Maintaining your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 Custom Cruiser's steering system with regular maintenance.
