How often should I service my 1989 Pontiac LeMans?
You want your Pontiac LeMans to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your LeMans 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 LeMans, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Pontiac LeMans!
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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your LeMans running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 Pontiac LeMans problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Pontiac LeMans for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 LeMans. 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.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Pontiac LeMans. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 LeMans 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty LeMans) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Pontiac LeMans won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Pontiac LeMans running newer, longer.

Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Pontiac LeMans.
