What is the maintenance schedule for the 1987 Pontiac Bonneville?

Here’s Why 1987 Pontiac Bonneville Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Pontiac Bonneville, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Bonneville could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Bonneville, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 Pontiac Bonneville!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Pontiac themselves. 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 Bonneville's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1987 Pontiac Bonneville problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Pontiac Bonneville

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Pontiac Bonneville for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Bonneville’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 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. 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Bonneville stranded. Your Pontiac Bonneville won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Pontiac Bonneville engine. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 Bonneville, check out the information table at the beginning of this page.

Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 Pontiac Bonneville?
