There's no need to guess when it's time to get Silhouette maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong.
It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette!
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;
however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like
fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations.
Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Silhouette perform better,
increase your vehicle safety,
and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette problems in the future.
Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Oldsmobile Silhouette Running Newer, Longer
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette for factory-recommended routine maintenance
and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check.
This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment.
Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Silhouette's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Could your 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette be ready for a new battery?
Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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 Silhouette battery.
Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to.
Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Silhouette) stuck in the middle of nowhere.
Your Oldsmobile Silhouette won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can
prevent premature wear on your 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette engine.
To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1993 Silhouette, check out the information table at the beginning of this page.
Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle.
A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs.

provide Oldsmobile Silhouette steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement.
To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Oldsmobile Silhouette's steering and suspension system.
If you skip recommended Oldsmobile Silhouette services,

What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Oldsmobile Silhouette?
You know your Oldsmobile Silhouette better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
When should I use high mileage oil in my Oldsmobile Silhouette?
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 Silhouette engines.
Can Oldsmobile dashboard warning lights wait?
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 Silhouette to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
