Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1999 Pontiac Montana!

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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac Montana Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1999 Pontiac Montana to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Montana. 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 1999 Pontiac Montana. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Montana may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac Montana 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 Montana won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1999 Pontiac Montana engine. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1999 Montana in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1999 Pontiac Montana.

Maintaining your Pontiac Montana steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Pontiac Montana steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Pontiac Montana's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Pontiac Montana services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Pontiac Montana cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Pontiac Montana radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1999 Pontiac Montana maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Pontiac Montana? 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 Montana? 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 Montana engines.
  •  Why are my Pontiac dashboard lights on? 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 Montana to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
