How often should I service my 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais?
When it comes to your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Cutlass Calais has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Cutlass Calais, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Oldsmobile, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Cutlass Calais's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais problems later.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais 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 Cutlass Calais. 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 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais. 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.

It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Cutlass Calais stranded. Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
