Oldsmobile knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Delta 88 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88 problems in the future.

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

Bring your 1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Delta 88's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88's engine run smoother. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 Delta 88, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Oldsmobile Delta 88 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Oldsmobile Delta 88 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Oldsmobile Delta 88's steering system with regular maintenance.
