This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Oldsmobile Firenza. 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).
