What to Know About 2006 Pontiac GTO Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Pontiac GTO and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your GTO 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 GTO maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2006 Pontiac GTO!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Pontiac themselves. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your GTO's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2006 Pontiac GTO problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Pontiac GTO

Bring your 2006 Pontiac GTO to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your GTO’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2006 Pontiac GTO? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your GTO may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac GTO battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 GTO stranded. Your Pontiac GTO won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2006 Pontiac GTO running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2006 GTO. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2006 Pontiac GTO.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.

If you fall behind on routine Pontiac GTO maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally!

2006 Pontiac GTO Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2006 Pontiac GTO. Get answers to common Pontiac GTO maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Pontiac GTO? 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 GTO? 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 GTO engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Pontiac? 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 GTO, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
