Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Cutlass stranded. Your Oldsmobile Cutlass could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass's engine run smoother. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 Cutlass, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Oldsmobile Cutlass can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

If you fall behind on routine Oldsmobile Cutlass maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Oldsmobile Cutlass cooling, heating, and climate control system.
