Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass

When should you have your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Cutlass jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Cutlass

Your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Cutlass shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1998 Cutlass Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Oldsmobile's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Oldsmobile Cutlass? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Cutlass power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
