What to Know About 1990 Pontiac Grand Am Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Pontiac Grand Am, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Grand Am has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 Grand Am maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1990 Pontiac Grand Am!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Grand Am perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1990 Pontiac Grand Am problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Pontiac Grand Am Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1990 Pontiac Grand Am to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Grand Am. 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 1990 Pontiac Grand Am? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Grand Am 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 Grand Am stranded. Your Pontiac Grand Am won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1990 Pontiac Grand Am engine. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 Grand Am, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1990 Pontiac Grand Am? We can help with that, too!

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Pontiac Grand Am? 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 does my Pontiac Grand Am need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Pontiac Grand Am engines.
  •  Why are my Pontiac dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Pontiac Grand Am, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
