What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1987 Saab 9000?
Take care of your Saab 9000 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 9000. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 9000 maintenance. Just follow your 1987 Saab 9000 maintenance schedule!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Saab themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 9000 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1987 Saab 9000 problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Saab 9000 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 9000. 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 1987 Saab 9000 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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 Saab 9000 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 9000) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Saab 9000 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Saab 9000 running newer, longer. See Saab's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 9000 in the chart at the top of this page. 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 1987 Saab 9000? We can help with that, too!
Periodic service to the steering system in your Saab 9000 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Saab 9000 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Saab 9000's steering system require regular maintenance.
If you skip recommended Saab 9000 services, 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.
