Your Guide to 2008 Pontiac G6 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Pontiac G6 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your G6. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine G6 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2008 Pontiac G6!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your G6's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Pontiac G6 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Pontiac G6 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2008 Pontiac G6 and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your G6’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2008 Pontiac G6. 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 G6 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your G6 stranded. Your Pontiac G6 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 2008 Pontiac G6 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 G6. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2008 Pontiac G6.

Maintaining your Pontiac G6 steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Pontiac G6 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. Components within your Pontiac G6's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Pontiac G6 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 you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Pontiac G6 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Pontiac G6 radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2008 Pontiac G6 maintenance.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Pontiac G6? You know your Pontiac G6 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 G6? If your Pontiac G6 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!
  •  Why are my Pontiac dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Pontiac G6 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.
