Here’s Why 1984 Renault R18i Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Renault R18i, 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 R18i has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get R18i 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 1984 Renault R18i!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Renault themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your R18i perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1984 Renault R18i problems.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1984 Renault R18i. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Renault R18i battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 R18i stranded. Your Renault R18i 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 1984 Renault R18i engine.

Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1984 Renault R18i.
