A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Sunfire’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 Pontiac Sunfire? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Sunfire may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac Sunfire 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Sunfire) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Pontiac Sunfire won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1999 Pontiac Sunfire's engine run smoother.

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 1999 Pontiac Sunfire.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1999 Pontiac Sunfire. Get answers to common Pontiac Sunfire maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Pontiac Sunfire alignment checked? 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 Sunfire? If your Pontiac Sunfire has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  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 Sunfire to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
