2001 Pontiac Sunfire Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Pontiac Sunfire’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2001 Pontiac Sunfire Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2001 Pontiac Sunfire, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Sunfire jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2001 Pontiac Sunfire in for suspension and steering service. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Pontiac Sunfire Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2001 Pontiac Sunfire’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sunfire’s shocks and struts 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 indicators of worn Pontiac Sunfire shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Pontiac Sunfire’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 2001 Pontiac Sunfire Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Sunfire? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Sunfire is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
