What to Know About 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Pontiac Grand Prix and it'll take care of you. 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. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Grand Prix maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix!

Pontiac knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Grand Prix perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix problems.

Overview of Essential Pontiac Grand Prix Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2002 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. 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Grand Prix stranded. Your Pontiac Grand Prix won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix running newer, longer. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2002 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. 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 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Pontiac Grand Prix suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. 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. 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 (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 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.

  • 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 switch my Pontiac Grand Prix to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Pontiac Grand Prix? 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.
  • Can Pontiac dashboard warning lights wait? 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
