How often should I service my 1984 Pontiac Bonneville?
You want your Pontiac Bonneville to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Bonneville. 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 Bonneville maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1984 Pontiac Bonneville!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Pontiac, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Bonneville perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1984 Pontiac Bonneville problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1984 Pontiac Bonneville for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Bonneville. 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 1984 Pontiac Bonneville? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Bonneville 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Bonneville stranded. Your Pontiac Bonneville won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1984 Pontiac Bonneville running newer, longer. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1984 Bonneville, 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1984 Pontiac Bonneville? We can help with that, too!
Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Bonneville can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Pontiac Bonneville suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Pontiac Bonneville's steering and suspension system.
If you fall behind on routine Pontiac Bonneville maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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.
