1997 Pontiac Sunfire Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1997 Pontiac Sunfire Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Sunfire feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Pontiac Sunfire’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Sunfire Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Pontiac Sunfire shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1997 Sunfire Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Pontiac Sunfire get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Pontiac Sunfire power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Sunfire is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
