Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Pontiac Montana

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2001 Pontiac Montana for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Montana’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2001 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 2001 Pontiac Montana engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2001 Montana. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2001 Pontiac Montana.

To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Pontiac Montana's steering and suspension system.
