Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Cutlass Ciera’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera be ready for a new battery? 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 Cutlass Ciera battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Cutlass Ciera) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera running newer, longer. See Oldsmobile's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1996 Cutlass Ciera in the chart at the top of this page. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera? We can help with that, too!
