Your Guide to 1987 Pontiac T1000 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Pontiac T1000 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your T1000 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine T1000 maintenance. Just follow your 1987 Pontiac T1000 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Pontiac themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 T1000's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1987 Pontiac T1000 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac T1000 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Pontiac T1000 and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your T1000's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1987 Pontiac T1000 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your T1000 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac T1000 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Pontiac T1000 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1987 Pontiac T1000'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 1987 T1000. 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 1987 Pontiac T1000? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Pontiac T1000 suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Pontiac T1000 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Pontiac T1000's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Pontiac T1000 maintenance, 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Pontiac T1000’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
