How often should I service my 1999 Pontiac Grand Am?

Here’s Why 1999 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, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Grand Am. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Grand Am maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1999 Pontiac Grand Am!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Pontiac, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 Pontiac Grand Am problems in the future.

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

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Pontiac Grand Am for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1999 Pontiac Grand Am. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac Grand Am battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Grand Am) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Pontiac Grand Am won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1999 Pontiac Grand Am's engine run smoother. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1999 Grand Am, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1999 Pontiac Grand Am? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Grand Am 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 the appropriate Pontiac Grand Am 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Pontiac Grand Am's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Pontiac Grand Am 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 Grand Am cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Pontiac Grand Am? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1999 Pontiac Grand Am maintenance.

  • 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? If your Pontiac Grand Am 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? 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 Grand Am to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
