With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Toronado. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Toronado maintenance. Just follow your 1990 Oldsmobile Toronado maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Oldsmobile themselves. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations.

Overview of Essential Oldsmobile Toronado Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1990 Oldsmobile Toronado to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Toronado. 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 1990 Oldsmobile Toronado be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Toronado may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Oldsmobile Toronado 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 Toronado) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Oldsmobile Toronado could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1990 Oldsmobile Toronado engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1990 Toronado. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.

If you fall behind on routine Oldsmobile Toronado maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C.
