Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Pontiac G8

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2009 Pontiac G8 and our technicians will jump right in with 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2009 Pontiac G8? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac G8 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 G8) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Pontiac G8 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2009 Pontiac G8 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 G8. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2009 Pontiac G8.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac G8 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

Components within your Pontiac G8's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Pontiac G8 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Pontiac G8’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Pontiac G8? You know your Pontiac G8 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 does my Pontiac G8 need high mileage oil? If your Pontiac G8 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!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Pontiac? 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 G8 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
