How often should I service my 1985 Pontiac Bonneville?
You want your Pontiac Bonneville to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Bonneville has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 Bonneville maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Pontiac Bonneville!
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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Bonneville running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Pontiac Bonneville problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Pontiac Bonneville for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Bonneville's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1985 Pontiac Bonneville? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1985 Pontiac Bonneville's engine run smoother. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1985 Bonneville, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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 1985 Pontiac Bonneville.
Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Bonneville can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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 Bonneville 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 Bonneville's steering system require regular maintenance.
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.
