Your Guide to 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Oldsmobile Firenza to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Firenza. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Firenza maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Oldsmobile, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Firenza's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Oldsmobile Firenza

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza 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 Firenza’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza. In general, car batteries only last 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. 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. 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 Firenza) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Oldsmobile Firenza won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza engine. See Oldsmobile's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Firenza in the chart at the top of this page.

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