What to Know About 2001 Pontiac Grand Am Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Pontiac Grand Am to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Grand Am could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2001 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2001 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 2001 Pontiac Grand Am and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2001 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). 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac Grand Am battery. 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 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 2001 Pontiac Grand Am's engine run smoother.

A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2001 Pontiac Grand Am.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2001 Pontiac Grand Am. Get answers to common Pontiac Grand Am maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Pontiac Grand Am alignment checked? 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.

  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Pontiac Grand Am? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Pontiac Grand Am? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  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.
