Your Guide to 1989 Pontiac 6000 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Pontiac 6000 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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 1989 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Pontiac 6000 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac 6000 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Pontiac 6000 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 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. 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Pontiac 6000 running newer, longer. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 6000 in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1989 Pontiac 6000? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Pontiac 6000 suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Pontiac 6000 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Pontiac 6000's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Pontiac 6000 maintenance, 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. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Pontiac 6000 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Pontiac 6000 radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it.

Questions About 1989 Pontiac 6000 Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Pontiac 6000. Get answers to common Pontiac 6000 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Pontiac 6000 alignment checked? You know your Pontiac 6000 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 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Pontiac? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Pontiac 6000 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
