Overview of Essential Oldsmobile Delta 88 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 Delta 88’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Delta 88 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 Delta 88 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Delta 88) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Oldsmobile Delta 88 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88 running newer, longer.

Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88.
