What to Know About 1985 Pontiac Fiero Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Pontiac Fiero to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Fiero 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Fiero maintenance. Just follow your 1985 Pontiac Fiero maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Pontiac, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Pontiac Fiero problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Pontiac Fiero Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1985 Pontiac Fiero to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 Fiero’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1985 Pontiac Fiero be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac Fiero battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Fiero) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Pontiac Fiero won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Pontiac Fiero running newer, longer. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1985 Fiero, 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. 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 1985 Pontiac Fiero.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Fiero can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Pontiac Fiero 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Pontiac Fiero's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Pontiac Fiero maintenance, 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. 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 Fiero engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Pontiac Fiero radiator? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1985 Pontiac Fiero maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

1985 Pontiac Fiero Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1985 Pontiac Fiero. Get answers to common Pontiac Fiero maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Pontiac Fiero alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Pontiac Fiero? If your Pontiac Fiero has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Pontiac dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Pontiac Fiero to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
