Here’s Why 1987 Pontiac Fiero Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Pontiac Fiero 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 Fiero. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Fiero maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like 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 Fiero's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1987 Pontiac Fiero problems later.

Overview of Essential Pontiac Fiero Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Pontiac Fiero for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 Pontiac Fiero? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Fiero may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Fiero battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). 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 1987 Pontiac Fiero running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Fiero. 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Pontiac Fiero.

Routine upkeep for your Pontiac Fiero suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Pontiac Fiero’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Pontiac Fiero? You know your Pontiac Fiero 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 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!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Pontiac? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Pontiac Fiero 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.
