What to Know About 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Pontiac Grand Prix and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Grand Prix. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Grand Prix maintenance. Just follow your 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix maintenance schedule!

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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Grand Prix perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix problems later.

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

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix 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 Prix. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix? 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. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix engine. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1999 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1999 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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. Components within your Pontiac Grand Prix's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Pontiac Grand Prix services, 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 Prix cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Pontiac Grand Prix radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it.

  • When should I have Pontiac Grand Prix alignment checked? You know your Pontiac Grand Prix better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Pontiac Grand Prix need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Pontiac Grand Prix engines.
  •  Why are my Pontiac dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Pontiac Grand Prix, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
