1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Oldsmobile Silhouette due for service yet?

Does Your 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Silhouette bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette in for steering and suspension services. 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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Silhouette suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Oldsmobile Silhouette suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Oldsmobile Silhouette Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Silhouette shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Silhouette’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1993 Oldsmobile Silhouette Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Oldsmobile's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Silhouette get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Silhouette power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Silhouette’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
