Here’s Why 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Pontiac Trans Sport and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Trans Sport has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more.

It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport!

Pontiac knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Trans Sport running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport problems.

Overview of Essential Pontiac Trans Sport Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. 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 Trans Sport’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Trans Sport may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac Trans Sport battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Trans Sport) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Pontiac Trans Sport could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport's engine run smoother. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1990 Trans Sport in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport? We can help with that, too!

Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Pontiac Trans Sport's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Pontiac Trans Sport maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 Trans Sport’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • When should I have Pontiac Trans Sport 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 switch my Pontiac Trans Sport to high mileage oil? If your Pontiac Trans Sport 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? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Pontiac Trans Sport in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
