What is the maintenance schedule for the 1985 Pontiac Firebird?

Here’s Why 1985 Pontiac Firebird Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Pontiac Firebird and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Firebird has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Firebird maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Pontiac Firebird!

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, 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 Firebird perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1985 Pontiac Firebird problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac Firebird Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Pontiac Firebird and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Firebird. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1985 Pontiac Firebird? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac Firebird 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 Firebird stranded. Your Pontiac Firebird won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Pontiac Firebird engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 Firebird. 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 1985 Pontiac Firebird.
