Here’s Why 1987 Pontiac 6000 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Pontiac 6000, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your 6000 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get 6000 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 Pontiac 6000!

Pontiac knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 6000's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1987 Pontiac 6000 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac 6000 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Pontiac 6000 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 6000. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 Pontiac 6000? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 6000 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac 6000 battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 Pontiac 6000 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Pontiac 6000 engine. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 6000, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Pontiac 6000.

  • When should I have Pontiac 6000 alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Pontiac 6000 to high mileage oil? If your Pontiac 6000 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Pontiac dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Pontiac 6000 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.
