Overview of Essential Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Cutlass Salon's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon. 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 Cutlass Salon may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 Cutlass Salon 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 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon 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 1985 Cutlass Salon. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.
