1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Does Your 1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1994 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 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. 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 components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your Silhouette steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Silhouette

Your 1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Oldsmobile up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Silhouette shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette suspension 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.

1994 Silhouette Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Silhouette's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Oldsmobile Silhouette? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
