It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix!

Overview of Essential Pontiac Grand Prix Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Grand Prix's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Pontiac Grand Prix 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. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix running newer, longer. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 Grand Prix 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Grand Prix can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Pontiac Grand Prix 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 Prix's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Pontiac Grand Prix maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Pontiac Grand Prix cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Pontiac Grand Prix? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix maintenance and repairs.

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