Here’s Why 1993 Pontiac Grand Am Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Pontiac Grand Am to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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 1993 Pontiac Grand Am!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Pontiac themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1993 Pontiac Grand Am problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac Grand Am Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1993 Pontiac Grand Am 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Grand Am's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1993 Pontiac Grand Am be ready for a new battery? 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 Grand Am battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Grand Am) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 1993 Pontiac Grand Am engine. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1993 Grand Am in the chart at the top of this page. 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 1993 Pontiac Grand Am.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Grand Am can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Pontiac Grand Am suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Pontiac Grand Am's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Pontiac Grand Am maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Pontiac Grand Am engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Pontiac Grand Am radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.
