What to Know About 1990 Pontiac 6000 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Pontiac 6000 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 6000 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 6000 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1990 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 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 6000's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1990 Pontiac 6000 problems.

Overview of Essential Pontiac 6000 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1990 Pontiac 6000 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 6000's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1990 Pontiac 6000. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Pontiac 6000 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1990 Pontiac 6000 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 1990 6000. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Pontiac 6000.

Maintaining your Pontiac 6000 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, 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.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Pontiac 6000? 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? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Pontiac 6000? 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 Pontiac dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should.
