Your Guide to 1985 Pontiac Parisienne Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Pontiac Parisienne, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Parisienne could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Parisienne maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1985 Pontiac Parisienne maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Pontiac, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Parisienne's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Pontiac Parisienne problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Pontiac Parisienne Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Pontiac Parisienne 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Parisienne’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1985 Pontiac Parisienne? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac Parisienne 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 Parisienne stranded. Your Pontiac Parisienne won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Pontiac Parisienne engine. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 1985 Parisienne, check out the information table at the beginning 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1985 Pontiac Parisienne? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Pontiac Parisienne steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, perform Pontiac Parisienne suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Pontiac Parisienne's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Pontiac Parisienne services, 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.
