Overview of Essential Oldsmobile Firenza Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with 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. 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.

Could your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Oldsmobile Firenza could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Firenza. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza.

Routine upkeep for your Oldsmobile Firenza suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

Components within your Oldsmobile Firenza's steering system require regular maintenance.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Oldsmobile Firenza’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
