2001 Intrigue Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Intrigue jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Oldsmobile Intrigue’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Intrigue Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Intrigue shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2001 Intrigue Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Oldsmobile Intrigue? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Intrigue power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
