It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1983 Oldsmobile Firenza!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Firenza perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1983 Oldsmobile Firenza problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Oldsmobile Firenza

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1983 Oldsmobile Firenza and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Firenza's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1983 Oldsmobile Firenza 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Firenza battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Firenza stranded. Your Oldsmobile Firenza won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1983 Oldsmobile Firenza engine. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1983 Firenza, 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1983 Oldsmobile Firenza.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.

If you fall behind on routine Oldsmobile Firenza maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Oldsmobile Firenza? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Oldsmobile Firenza need high mileage oil? If your Oldsmobile Firenza has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Oldsmobile dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Oldsmobile Firenza to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
