Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Renault Alliance. In general, car batteries only last 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 Renault Alliance battery.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Alliance) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Renault Alliance won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Renault Alliance running newer, longer.

Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate.

Questions About 1986 Renault Alliance Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1986 Renault Alliance. Get answers to common Renault Alliance maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Renault Alliance? 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 use high mileage oil in my Renault Alliance? 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 Renault Alliance engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Renault? 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 Renault Alliance to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
