Here’s Why 1998 Oldsmobile LSS Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Oldsmobile LSS and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your LSS has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. 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 1998 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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your LSS's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1998 Oldsmobile LSS problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Oldsmobile LSS

Bring your 1998 Oldsmobile LSS to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Could your 1998 Oldsmobile LSS be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your LSS may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Oldsmobile LSS battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1998 Oldsmobile LSS's engine run smoother. See Oldsmobile's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1998 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1998 Oldsmobile LSS.

Routine upkeep for your Oldsmobile LSS suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Oldsmobile LSS steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.

  • 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 does my Oldsmobile LSS need high mileage oil? 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!
  •  Why are my Oldsmobile dashboard lights on? 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.
