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.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac Phoenix Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1983 Pontiac Phoenix 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 Phoenix’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1983 Pontiac Phoenix? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Phoenix may need a replacement battery sooner.

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 Phoenix stranded. Your Pontiac Phoenix won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1983 Pontiac Phoenix's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1983 Phoenix. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1983 Pontiac Phoenix? We can help with that, too!

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Pontiac Phoenix? 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 switch my Pontiac Phoenix to high mileage oil? 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 Phoenix engines.
  • Can Pontiac dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Phoenix to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
