Your Guide to 1996 Oldsmobile LSS Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Oldsmobile LSS, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your LSS has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get LSS maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1996 Oldsmobile LSS maintenance schedule!

Oldsmobile knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your LSS perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Oldsmobile LSS problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Oldsmobile LSS

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1996 Oldsmobile LSS for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your LSS’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1996 Oldsmobile LSS? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Oldsmobile LSS battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 LSS 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 1996 Oldsmobile LSS engine. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1996 LSS, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1996 Oldsmobile LSS? We can help with that, too!

Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Oldsmobile LSS suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Oldsmobile LSS's steering system require regular maintenance.

1996 Oldsmobile LSS Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1996 Oldsmobile LSS. Get answers to common Oldsmobile LSS maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Oldsmobile LSS alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Oldsmobile LSS to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Oldsmobile LSS engines.
  •  Why are my Oldsmobile dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Oldsmobile LSS to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
