Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Renault Encore!

Renault 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Encore running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1985 Renault Encore problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Renault Encore Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Renault Encore for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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 Encore. 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 1985 Renault Encore 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 Encore 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 Renault Encore battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Renault Encore won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Renault Encore running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 Encore. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1985 Renault Encore.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Renault Encore can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Renault Encore suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Renault Encore's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Renault Encore 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Renault Encore’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

Questions About 1985 Renault Encore Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1985 Renault Encore. Get answers to common Renault Encore maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Renault Encore alignment checked? 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 does my Renault Encore need high mileage oil? 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 Encore engines.
  • Can Renault dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Encore to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
