Here’s Why 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Oldsmobile Silhouette and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Silhouette could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 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 1999 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Silhouette running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 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 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Silhouette. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Silhouette may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Oldsmobile Silhouette battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette running newer, longer. To learn how often Oldsmobile recommends you have the oil changed in your 1999 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Oldsmobile Silhouette can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, 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.

Without routine Oldsmobile Silhouette maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Oldsmobile Silhouette cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Oldsmobile Silhouette radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Oldsmobile Silhouette? 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 should I switch my Oldsmobile Silhouette to high mileage oil? If your Oldsmobile Silhouette 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? 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.
