Here’s Why 1996 Pontiac Bonneville Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Pontiac Bonneville, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Bonneville. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Bonneville maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1996 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. 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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. 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 help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1996 Pontiac Bonneville problems later.

Overview of Essential Pontiac Bonneville Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1996 Pontiac Bonneville to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1996 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. 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

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 1996 Pontiac Bonneville running newer, longer. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1996 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 1996 Pontiac Bonneville? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Pontiac Bonneville steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Pontiac Bonneville's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Pontiac Bonneville maintenance, 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Pontiac Bonneville engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Pontiac Bonneville radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1996 Pontiac Bonneville maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1996 Pontiac Bonneville. Get answers to common Pontiac Bonneville maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Pontiac Bonneville alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1996 Bonneville is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • 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 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. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Pontiac Bonneville, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
