Overview of Essential Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Cutlass Supreme’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Cutlass Supreme may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Supreme battery. 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 Cutlass Supreme won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme's engine run smoother. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1986 Cutlass Supreme, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme?
