What to Know About 1997 Oldsmobile LSS Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Oldsmobile LSS, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your LSS has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more.

Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1997 Oldsmobile LSS!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Oldsmobile, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your LSS running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1997 Oldsmobile LSS problems.

Overview of Essential Oldsmobile LSS Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1997 Oldsmobile LSS 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your LSS's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1997 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty LSS) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Oldsmobile LSS won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1997 Oldsmobile LSS's engine run smoother. See Oldsmobile's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1997 LSS in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1997 Oldsmobile LSS.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Oldsmobile LSS can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Oldsmobile LSS's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Oldsmobile LSS maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Oldsmobile LSS? 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 use high mileage oil in my Oldsmobile LSS? If your Oldsmobile LSS has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Oldsmobile? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Oldsmobile LSS in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
