Your Guide to 1997 Saab 900 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Saab 900 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 900. 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 900 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1997 Saab 900 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Saab, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 900's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1997 Saab 900 problems in the future.

Bring your 1997 Saab 900 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 900’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1997 Saab 900 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 900 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Saab 900 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 Saab 900 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 1997 Saab 900 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 1997 900. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1997 Saab 900? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Saab 900 suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Saab 900 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 Saab 900's steering system with regular maintenance.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Saab 900? You know your Saab 900 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Saab 900 to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Saab 900? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Saab? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Saab 900 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
