How often should I service my 1984 Pontiac Fiero?
Take care of your Pontiac Fiero and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Fiero. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Fiero, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1984 Pontiac Fiero!
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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Fiero perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1984 Pontiac Fiero problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1984 Pontiac Fiero for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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 Fiero’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1984 Pontiac Fiero. 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac Fiero 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Fiero) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Pontiac Fiero 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 1984 Pontiac Fiero's engine run smoother.

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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1984 Pontiac Fiero.
