When To Get 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Intrigue bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Oldsmobile Intrigue suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Intrigue Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Intrigue’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Intrigue shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 Intrigue Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Intrigue's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Oldsmobile Intrigue? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Oldsmobile intended.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Intrigue power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Intrigue is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
