1997 Oldsmobile LSS Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Oldsmobile LSS’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1997 Oldsmobile LSS Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1997 Oldsmobile LSS, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your LSS feels bouncy, 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 1997 Oldsmobile LSS, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Oldsmobile LSS’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 LSS Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Oldsmobile LSS’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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1997 Oldsmobile LSS’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile LSS shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Oldsmobile LSS’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 LSS Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my LSS's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile LSS get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile LSS power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your LSS is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
