What to Know About 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Pontiac Grand Prix to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Grand Prix could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Grand Prix, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Pontiac, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Grand Prix's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix problems in the future.

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

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last 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. 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 help your 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix's engine run smoother. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 Grand Prix, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix.

Maintaining your Pontiac Grand Prix steering and suspension system 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 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Pontiac Grand Prix's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Pontiac Grand Prix 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Pontiac Grand Prix’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Pontiac Grand Prix radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

1990 Pontiac Grand Prix Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix. Get answers to common Pontiac Grand Prix maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Pontiac Grand Prix? 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Pontiac Grand Prix? If your Pontiac Grand Prix 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!
  • Can Pontiac dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Prix to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
