What to Know About 1999 Pontiac Firebird Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Pontiac Firebird, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Firebird could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. Just follow your 1999 Pontiac Firebird maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Pontiac, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Firebird running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 Pontiac Firebird problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac Firebird Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1999 Pontiac Firebird and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Firebird's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1999 Pontiac Firebird. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Firebird 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 Firebird battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Firebird) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Pontiac Firebird won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1999 Pontiac Firebird's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1999 Firebird. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1999 Pontiac Firebird.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Firebird can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones.

To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Pontiac Firebird's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Pontiac Firebird maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.
