Here’s Why 1990 Pontiac Firebird Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Pontiac Firebird and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Firebird could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Firebird, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1990 Pontiac Firebird!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Pontiac themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Firebird running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1990 Pontiac Firebird problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Pontiac Firebird Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Pontiac Firebird for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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.

Could your 1990 Pontiac Firebird be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 Firebird won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1990 Pontiac Firebird running newer, longer. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1990 Firebird in the chart at the top of this page. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1990 Pontiac Firebird? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Firebird 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Pontiac Firebird suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Pontiac Firebird's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Pontiac Firebird maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Pontiac Firebird cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Pontiac Firebird? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1990 Pontiac Firebird maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1990 Pontiac Firebird. Get answers to common Pontiac Firebird maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Pontiac Firebird? 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 switch my Pontiac Firebird to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Pontiac Firebird? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  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 Firebird to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
