Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Oldsmobile Delta 88 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Could your 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 be ready for a new battery? 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Delta 88 stranded. Your Oldsmobile Delta 88 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88's engine run smoother. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1984 Delta 88, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88.
