What to Know About 1991 Pontiac Grand Am Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Pontiac Grand Am to last as long as possible. With proactive 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 1991 Pontiac Grand Am!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Pontiac themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Grand Am's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1991 Pontiac Grand Am problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Pontiac Grand Am Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 Pontiac Grand Am for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Grand Am’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1991 Pontiac Grand Am be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Grand Am may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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! 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 Grand Am won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1991 Pontiac Grand Am engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1991 Grand Am. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1991 Pontiac Grand Am.

Maintaining your Pontiac Grand Am steering and suspension system 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Pontiac Grand Am steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Pontiac Grand Am's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Pontiac Grand Am services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Pontiac Grand Am? You know your Pontiac Grand Am 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 Grand Am? 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.
  • Can Pontiac dashboard warning lights wait? 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
