What to Know About 1989 Pontiac Bonneville Scheduled Maintenance

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. 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. Just follow your 1989 Pontiac Bonneville maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Pontiac themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1989 Pontiac Bonneville problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Pontiac Bonneville

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Pontiac Bonneville for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. 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 1989 Pontiac Bonneville? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac Bonneville battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Bonneville) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Pontiac Bonneville running newer, longer. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 Bonneville, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Pontiac Bonneville.

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 might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Pontiac Bonneville’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Pontiac Bonneville? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.

Questions About 1989 Pontiac Bonneville Maintenance

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

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Pontiac Bonneville? You know your Pontiac Bonneville 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 Bonneville to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Pontiac Bonneville engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Pontiac? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Pontiac Bonneville in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
