How often should I service my 1983 Pontiac 6000?
Take care of your Pontiac 6000 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 6000. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 6000 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1983 Pontiac 6000!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Pontiac, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 6000 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1983 Pontiac 6000 problems in the future.
Bring your 1983 Pontiac 6000 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 6000’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1983 Pontiac 6000. 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 6000 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac 6000 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 6000) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Pontiac 6000 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 help your 1983 Pontiac 6000's engine run smoother.
