How often should I service my 1985 Renault Fuego?
When it comes to your Renault Fuego, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Fuego 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Fuego maintenance. Just follow your 1985 Renault Fuego maintenance schedule!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Renault 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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 Fuego running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Renault Fuego problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Renault Fuego and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Fuego’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Could your 1985 Renault Fuego be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Fuego 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 Fuego battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Fuego stranded. Your Renault Fuego 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 help your 1985 Renault Fuego's engine run smoother. See Renault's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Fuego in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Renault Fuego.
Periodic service to the steering system in your Renault Fuego can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Renault Fuego's steering system require regular maintenance.
