  • Why won't my Firebird battery stay charged? A battery that won't hold a charge is almost as good as dead. It may be getting old.

Stop in for a free battery check at your favorite Firestone Complete Auto Care and get a handle on your car battery’s health.

  • What’s the cost of DieHard batteries for Pontiac Firebirds? Pontiac Firebird batteries can be affordable, especially when there's an available battery coupon. The best part is every DieHard battery comes with a free replacement warranty and extra coverage with DieHard Assurance.
  • How long is a car battery good for? Car battery lifespan varies depending on a few factors, including driving conditions, accessories,  how well it’s maintained, and the type of battery. On average, a car battery lasts about three to five years.
  • Why is there white, crusty buildup on my Firebird’s battery post? The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your Firebird’s battery terminals is known as corrosion. Acid leaking from your vehicle’s battery post can have a chemical reaction with the air, leading to an accumulation of the white, powdery substance over time. Corrosion can affect the flow of electricity between your battery and the electrical system in your Firebird, possibly causing issues with electrical performance and starting. If left unaddressed for long enough, it may even cause your battery to prematurely fail.
  • How do I clean a corroded Firebird battery terminal? To help extend the life of your battery, you should routinely inspect and clean the terminals using a baking soda and water mix, wire brush, and rag. Be sure to disconnect the battery cables before cleaning and check your Firebird owner’s manual for instructions on how to do so.
