1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Cutlass Supreme bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Cutlass Supreme suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Cutlass Supreme steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Cutlass Supreme’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cutlass Supreme’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cutlass Supreme's steering and suspension?

Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Oldsmobile intended.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
