Overview of Essential Pontiac Grand Prix Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Pontiac Grand Prix for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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 Prix’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1985 Pontiac Grand Prix? 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 Prix may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac Grand Prix battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. 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 Prix could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1985 Pontiac Grand Prix's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 Grand Prix. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1985 Pontiac Grand Prix? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Grand Prix can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Pontiac Grand Prix 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 Prix's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Pontiac Grand Prix services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 Prix engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Pontiac Grand Prix? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1985 Pontiac Grand Prix maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
