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

Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Cutlass Cruiser's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser

Bring your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 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 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser? 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. 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 Cutlass 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Cutlass Cruiser) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Cutlass Cruiser. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser? We can help with that, too!
