Gasolines for Cleaner Air Your use of gasoline with detergent additives will help prevent deposits from forming in your engine and fuel system. That helps keep your engine in tune and your emission control system working properly. It’s good for your vehicle, and you’ll be doing your part for cleaner air. Many gasolines are now blended with materials called oxygenates. General Motors recommends that you use gasolines with these blending materials, such as MTBE and ethanol. By doing so, you can help clean the air, especially in those pa@ of the country that have high carbon monoxide levels.

In addition, some gasoline suppliers are now producing reformulated gasolines. These gasolines are specially designed to reduce vehicle emissions. General Motors recommends that you use reformulated gasoline. By doing so, you can help clean the air, especially in those parts of the country that have high ozone levels. You should ask your service station operators if their gasolines contain detergents and oxygenates, and if they have been reformulated to reduce vehicle emissions.

Fuels in Foreign Countries tf you plan on driving in another country outside the U.S. or Canada, unleaded fuel may be hard to find. Do not use leaded gasoline. If you use even one tankful, your emission controls won’t work well or at all. With continuous use, spark plugs can get fouled, the exhaust system can corrode, and your engine oil can deteriorate quickly. Your vehicle’s oxygen sensor will be damaged. All of that means costly repairs that wouldn’t be covered by your warranty.

To check on fuel availability, ask an auto club, or contact a major oil company that does business in the country where you’ll be driving. You can also write us at the following address for advice. Just tell us where you’re going and give your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Engine Oil It’s a good idea to check your engine oil every time you get fuel. In order to get an accurate reading, the oil must be warm and the vehicle must be on level ground. Turn off the engine and give the oil a few minutes to drain back into the oil pan. If you don’t, the oil dipstick might not show the actual level. To Check Engine Oil: Pull out the dipstick and clean it with a paper towel or cloth, then push it back in all the way. Remove it again, keeping the tip lower.

When to Add Oil: If the oil is at or below the ADD line, then you’ll need to add some oil. But you must use the right kind. This section explains what kind of oil to use. For crankcase capacity, see the Zr.z&x under Capacities & Specijicatiow.

Don’t add too much oil. If your engine has so much oil that the oil level gets above the cross-hatched area that shows the proper operating range, your engine could be damaged.

Just fill it enough to put the level somewhere in the proper operating range. Push the dipstick all the way back in when you’re through.

SAE low-30 As shown in the viscosity chart, SAE 1OW-30 is best for your vehicle. However, you can use SAE 5W-30 if it’s going to be colder than 60°F (16°C) before your next oil change. When it’s very cold, below 0°F (-18”C), you should use SAE 5W-30. These numbers on an oil container show its viscosity, or thickness. Do not use other viscosity oils such as SAE 1OW-40 or SAE 20W-50. Energy Conserving 11 Oils with these words on the container will help you save fuel.

This doughnut-shaped logo (symbol) is used on most oil containers to help you select the correct oil. You should look for this on the oil container, and use only those oils that display the logo. GM Goodwrench@ Oil (in Canada, GM Engine Oil) meets all the requirements for your vehicle. Engine Oil Additives Don’t add anything to your oil. Your Pontiac dealer is ready to advise if you think something should be added.

When to Change Engine Oil See if any one of these is true for you:

Most trips are less than 4 miles (6 km). It’s below freezing outside and most trips are less than 10 miles (16 km). The engine is at low speed most of the time (as in door-to-door delivery, or in stop-and-go traffic). You tow a trailer often. Most trips are through dusty places.

If any one of these is true for your vehicle, you need to change your oil and filter every 3,000 miles (5 000 km) or 3 months-whichever comes first. If none of them is true, change the oil every 7,500 miles (12 500 km) or 12 months-whichever comes first. Change the filter at the first oil change and at every other oil change after that. Engine Block Heater An engine block heater can be a big help if you have to park outside in very cold weather, 0°F (-18OC) or colder. If your vehicle has this option, see the Index under Engine Block Heater.

let used oil stay on your skin fbr very long. Clean your skin and nails with soaQ and water, or a good hand cleaner. Wash or properly throw away clothing or rags containing used engine oil.

Used oil can be a real threat to environment. If you change your own oil, be sure to drain all free-flowing oil from the filter before disposal. Don’t ever dispose of oil by pouring it on the ground, into sewers, or into streams or bodies of water. Instead, recycle it by taking it to a place that collects used oil. If you have a problem properly disposing of your used oil, ask your dealer, a service station or a local recycling center for help.

Automatic Transax/e Fluid When to Check and Change: A good time to check your automatic transaxle fluid level is when the engine oil is changed. Refer to the Maintenance Schedule to determine when to change your fluid. See the Index under Scheduled Maintenance Services. How to Check: Because this operation can be a little difficult, you may choose to have this done at a dealership Service Department. If you do it yourself, be sure to follow all the instructions here, or you could get a false reading on the dipstick.

Too much or too little fluid can damage your transaxle. Too much can mean that some of the fluid could come out and fall on hot engine parts, starting a fire. Be sure to get an accurate reading if you check your transaxle fluid.

Wait at least 30 minutes before checking the transaxle fluid level if you have been driving:

When outside temperatures are above 90" F (32" C). At high speed for quite a while. In heavy traffic-especially weather. While pulling a trailer.

in hot

To get the right reading, the fluid should be at normal operating temperature, which is 180°F to 200°F (82°C to 93" C). Get the vehicle warmed up by driving about 15 miles (24 km) when outside temperatures are above 50" F (10" C). If it's colder than 50°F (lO°C), you may have to drive longer.

To Check the Fluid Level:

Park your vehicle on a level place. Place the shift lever in P (Park) with the parking brake applied. With your foot on the brake pedal, move the shift lever through each gear range, pausing for about three seconds in each range. Then, position the shift lever in P (Park). Let the engine run at idle for three to five minutes.

Then, Without Shutting Off the Engine, Follow These Steps: 1. Pull out the dipstick and wipe it with

a clean rag or paper towel.

2. Push it back in all the way, wait three

seconds and then pull it back out again.

3. Check both sides of the dipstick, and read the lower level. The fluid level must be in the crosshatched area. 4. If the fluid level is where it should

be, push the dipstick back in all the way.

Service & Appearance Care

Automatic Transaxle Fluid (CONTJ How to Add Fluid: Refer to the Maintenance Schedule to determine what kind of transaxle fluid to use. See the Index under Fluids & Lubricants. If the fluid level is low, add only enough of the proper fluid to bring the level up into the cross-hatched area on the dipstick. It doesn't take much fluid, generally less than a pint (0.5 L). Don't overfill. We recommend that you use only fluid labeled DEXRON@-IIE, because fluids with that label are made especially for your automatic transaxle. Damage caused by fluid other than DEXRON@-IIE is not covered by your new vehicle warranty.

After adding fluid, recheck the fluid level as described under How to Check. When the correct fluid level is obtained, push the dipstick back in all the way.

Engine Coolant The following explains your cooling system and how to add coolant when it is low. If you have a problem with engine overheating, see the Index under Engine Overheating. The proper coolant for your Pontiac will:

Give freezing protection down to -34°F (-37°C). Give boiling protection up to 262°F (128" C). Protect against rust and corrosion. Help keep the proper engine temperature. Let the warning lights work as they should.

What to Use: Use a mixture of one-half clean water ‘preferably distilled) and one-half intifreeze that meets “GM Specification 1825-M,” which won’t damage aluminum parts. You can also use a recycled coolant conforming to GM Specification 1825-M with a complete 2oolant flush and refill. If you use this mixture, you don’t need to add anything :1 se .

Adding only plain water to your cooling system can be wgerous. Plain water, or some other liquid like alcohol, can boil :fore the proper coolant mix will.

Your vehicle’s coolant warning system is set for the proper coolant mix. With plain water or the - wrong mix, your engine couId get too hot but you wouldn’t get the overheat warning. Your engine could catch fire and you or others could be burned. Use a S0/50 mix of clean water and a proper antifreeze.

If you use an improper coolant mix, your engine could overheat and be badly damaged. The repair cost wouldn’t be covered by your warranty. Too much water in the mix can freeze and crack the engine, radiator, heater core other parts.

Service & Appearance Care


Adding Coolant To Check Coolant: When your engine is cold, the coolant level should be between the FULL COLD mark and FULL HOT. When your engine is warm, the level should be up to FULL HOT, or a little higher.

If you have the optional low coolant warning light and it comes on when your engine is running, you’re low on coolant. Or, if you have the optional Driver Information Center and the warning LOW COOLANT appears, you’re low on coolant.

m .


To Add Coolant: If you need more coolant, add the proper mix at the coolant recovery tank.

Turning the radiator pressure 1

Brake Master Cylinder Your brake master cylinder is here. It is filled with DOT-3 brake fluid. There are only two reasons why the brake fluid level in your master cylinder might go down. The first is that the brake fluid goes down to an acceptable level during normal brake lining wear. When new linings are put in, the fluid level goes back up. The other reason is that fluid is leaking out of the brake system. If it is, you should have your brake system fixed, since a leak means that sooner or later your brakes won’t work well, or won’t work at all. So, it isn’t a good idea to “top off’ your brake fluid. Adding brake fluid won’t correct a leak. If you add fluid when

engine. The fluid will burn if the engine is hot enough. You or others could be burned, and your engine could be damaged. Add brake fluid only when work is done on the brake hydraulic system.

When your brake fluid falls to a low level, your brake warning light will come on. A continuous chime will sound if you try to drive with this warning light on. See the Index under Brake System Warning Light. What to Add: When you do need brake fluid, use only DOT-3 brake fluid-such as Delco Supreme ll@ (GM Part No. 1052535). Use new brake fluid from a sealed container only.

DOT-5 silicone brake fluid can damage your vehicle. Don’t use it. Don’t let someone put in the wrong kind of fluid. For example, just a few drops of mineral-based oil, such as engine oil, in your brake system can damage brake system parts so badly that they’ll have to be replaced. Brake fluid can damage paint, so be careful not to spill brake fluid on your vehicle.

Battery Every new Pontiac has a Delco Freedom@ battery. You never have to add water to one of these. When it’s time for a new battery, we recommend a Delco Freedom@ battery. Get one that has the catalog number shown on the original battery’s label. Jump Starting For jump starting instructions, see the Index under Jump Starting.

Replacing Brake System Pants The braking system on a modem vehicle is complex. Its many parts have to be of top quality and work well together if the vehicle is to have really good braking. Vehicles we design and test have top- quality GM brake parts in them, as your Pontiac does when it is new. When you replace parts of your braking system- for example, when your brake linings wear down and you have to have new ones put in-be sure you get new genuine GM replacement parts. If you don’t, your brakes may no longer work properly. For example, if someone puts in brake linings that are wrong for your vehicle, the balance between your front and rear brakes can change, for the worse. The braking performance you’ve come to expect can change in many other ways if someone puts in the wrong replacement brake parts.

Vehicle Storage If you’re not going to drive your vehicle for 25 days or more, take off the black negative (-) cable from the battery. This will help keep your battery from running down.

1 Batteries have acid that can

burn you and gas that can

explode. You can be badly hurt if you aren’t careful. See the Index under Jump Starting for tips on working around a battery without getting hurt.

Loading bur Vehicle Two labels on your vehicle show how much weight it may properly carry. The Tire-Loading Information label found on the rear edge of the driver’s door tells you the proper size, speed rating and recommended inflation pressures for the tires on your vehicle. It also gives you important information about the number of people that can be in your vehicle and the total weight that you can carry. This weight is called the Vehicle Capacity Weight and includes the weight of all occupants, cargo, and all nonfactory- installed options. The other label is the Certification label, also on the rear edge of the driver’s door. It tells you the gross weight capacity of your vehicle, called

the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating). The GVWR includes the weight of the vehicle, all occupants, fuel and cargo. Never exceed the GVWR for your vehicle, or the Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) for either the front or rear axle. And, if you do have a heavy load, you should spread it out.

The tire has a puncture, cut, or other damage that can’t be repaired well because of the size or location of the damage.

Buying New Tires To find out what kind and size of tires you need, look at the Tire-Loading Information label. The tires installed on your vehicle when it was new had a Tire Performance Criteria Specification (TPC Spec) number on each tire’s sidewall. When you get new tires, get ones with that same TPC Spec number. That way, your vehicle will continue to have tires that are designed to give proper endurance, handling, speed rating, traction, ride and other things during normal service on your vehicle. If your tires have an all-season tread design, the TPC number will be followed by a “MS” (for mud and snow). If you ever replace your tires with those not having a TPC Spec number, make sure they are the same size, load range, speed rating and construction type (bias, bias-belted or radial) as your original tires.

I CAUTION A Mixing tires could cause you

to lose control while driving. If you mix tires of different sizes or types (radial and bias-belted tires), the vehicle may not handle properly, and you could have a crash. Be sure to use the same size and type tires on all wheels. It’s all right to drive with your compact spare, though. It was developed for limited use on your vehicle.

rn Uniform Tire Quality


The following information relates to the system developed by the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration which grades tires by treadwear, traction and temperature performance. (This applies only to vehicles sold in the United States.)

Treadwear The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and a half (1%) times as well on the government course as a tire graded 100. The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use, however, and may depart significantly from the norm due to variations in driving habits, service practices and differences in road characteristics and climate.


Service & Appearance Care

Traction-A, 5, C The traction grades, from highest to lowest are: A, B, and C. They represent the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement as measured under controlled conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C may have poor traction performance. Warning: The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on braking (straight- ahead) traction tests and does not include cornering (turning) traction.

Temperature-A, B, C The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tire’s resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel. Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds to a level of performance which all passenger car tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109. Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel than the minimum required by law.

Warning: The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded. Excessive speed, underinflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup and possible tire failure. Those grades are molded on the sidewalls of passenger car tires. While the tires available as standard or optional equipment on General Motors vehicles may vary with respect to these grades, all such tires meet General Motors performance standards and have been approved for use on General Motors vehicles. All passenger type (P Metric) tires must conform to Federal safety requirements in addition to these grades.


Wheel Alignment and Tire Balance The wheels on your vehicle were iligned and balanced carefully at the 'actory to give you the longest tire life md best overall performance. :n most cases, you will not need to have jour wheels aligned again. However, if jou notice unusual tire wear or your iehicle pulling one way or the other, the dignment may need to be reset. If you lotice your vehicle vibrating when hiving on a smooth road, your wheels nay need to be rebalanced.

Wheel Replacement Replace any wheel that is bent, cracked or badly rusted. If wheel nuts keep coming loose, the wheel, wheel bolts, and wheel nuts should be replaced. If the wheel leaks air out, replace it (except some aluminum wheels, which can sometimes be repaired). See your Pontiac dealer if any of these conditions exist. Your dealer will know what kind of wheel you need. Each new wheel should have the same load carrying capacity, diameter, width, offset, and be mounted the same way as the one it replaces.

If you need to replace any of your wheels, wheel bolts, or wheel nuts, replace them only with new GM original equipment parts. This way, you will be sure you have the right wheel, wheel bolts, and wheel nuts for your Pontiac model.

A Using the wrong replacement

wheels, wheel bolts, or wheel

nuts on your vehicle can be dangerous. It could affect the braking and handling of your vehicle, make your tires lose air and make you lose control. You could have a collision in which you or others could be injured. Always use the correct wheel, wheel bolts, and wheel nuts for replacement.

Putting a used wheel on your \ vehicle is dangerous. You I’t know how it’s been used or how many miles it’s been driven. It could fail suddenly and cause an accident. If you have to replace a wheel, use a new GM original equipment wheel.



Appearance care A Cleaning products can be hazardous. Some are toxic. Others can burst

into flame if you strike a match or get them on a hot part of the vehicle. Some are dangerous if you breathe their fumes in a closed space. When you use anything in a container to clean your Pontiac, be sure to follow the instructions. And always open your doors or windows when you're cleaning the inside. Never use these to clean your vehicle:

Gasoline Benzene Naphtha

Turpentine Lacquer Thinner Nail Polish Remover They can all be hazardous-some more than others-md they can all damage your

Carbon Tetrachloride Acetone Paint Thinner

Don't use any of these unless this manual says you can. In many uses, they will damage your vehicle:

Laundry Soap Bleach Reducing Agents

Service Appearance Care

Cleaning the inside of bur Pontiac Use a vacuum cleaner often to get rid of dust and loose dirt. Wipe vinyl with a clean, damp cloth. Your Pontiac dealer has two GM cleaners-a solvent-type spot lifter and a foam-type powdered cleaner. They will clean normal spots and stains very well. Here are some cleaning tips:

Always read the instructions on the cleaner label. Clean up stains as soon as you can- before they set. Use a clean cloth or sponge, and change to a clean area often. A soft brush may be used if stains are stubborn.

Use solvent-type cleaners in a well- ventilated area only. If you use them, don’t saturate the stained area. If a ring forms after spot cleaning, clean the entire area immediately or it will set. Using Foam-Type Cleaner on Fabric Vacuum and brush the area to remove any loose dirt. Always clean a whole trim panel or section. Mask surrounding trim along stitch or welt lines. Mix Multi-Purpose Powdered Cleaner following the directions on the container label. Use suds only and apply with a clean sponge.

Don’t saturate the material. Don’t rub it roughly. As soon as you’ve cleaned the section, use a sponge to remove the suds. Rinse the section with a clean, wet sponge. Wipe off what’s left with a slightly damp paper towel or cloth. Then dry it immediately with an air hose, a hair dryer or a heat lamp.

Wipe with a clean cloth.

Using Solvent-Type Cleaner on Fabric First, see if you have to use solvent-type cleaner at all. Some spots and stains will clean off better with just water and mild soap. If you need to use it, then:

Gently scrape excess soil from the trim material with a clean, dull knife or scraper. Use very little cleaner, light pressure and clean cloths (preferably cheesecloth). Cleaning should start at the outside of the stain, “feathering” toward the center. Keep changing to a clean section of the cloth. When you clean a stain from fabric, immediately dry the area with an air hose, hair dryer, or heat lamp to help prevent a cleaning ring. (See the previous NOTICE.)

Special Cleaning Problems Greasy or Oily Stains: Like grease, oil, butter, margarine, shoe polish, coffee with cream, chewing gum, cosmetic creams, vegetable oils, wax crayon, tar and asphalt.

Carefully scrape off excess stain. Then follow the solvent-type instructions above. Shoe polish, wax crayon, tar and asphalt will stain if left on a vehicle seat fabric. They should be removed as soon as possible. Be careful, because the cleaner will dissolve them and may cause them to bleed.

Non-Greasy Stains: Like catsup, coffee (black), egg, fruit, fruit juice, milk, soft drinks, wine, vomit, urine and blood.

0 Carefully scrape off excess stain, then sponge the soiled area with cool water. If a stain remains, follow the foam- type instructions above. If an odor lingers after cleaning vomit or urine, treat the area with a water/ baking soda solution: 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of baking soda to 1 cup (250 ml) of lukewarm water. Finally, if needed, clean lightly with solvent-type cleaner. Combination Stains: Like candy, ice cream, mayonnaise, chili sauce and unknown stains.

Carefully scrape off excess stain, then clean with cool water and allow to dry. If a stain remains, clean it with solvent-type cleaner.


Service & Appearance Care

Cleaning Vinyl or Leafher Just use warm water and a clean cloth.

Rub with a clean, damp cloth to remove dirt. You may have to do it more than once. Things like tar, asphalt and shoe polish will stain if you don’t get them off quickly. Use a clean cloth and solvent-type vinyl/leather cleaner.

Cleaning the Top of fhe Instrument Panel Use only mild soap and water to clean the top surfaces of the instrument panel. Sprays containing silicones or waxes may cause annoying reflections in the windshield and even make it difficult to see through the windshield under certain conditions.

Care of Safety Belts Keep belts clean and dry.

A Do not bleach or dye safety A belts. If you do, it may Deverely weaken them. In a crash they might not be able to provide adequate protectinrl. Clean safety belts only with 1 lukewarm water

Glass Glass should be cleaned often. GM Glass Cleaner (GM Part No. 1050427) or a liquid household glass cleaner will remove normal tobacco smoke and dust films. Don’t use abrasive cleaners on glass, because they may cause scratches. Avoid placing decals on the inside rear window, since they may have to be scraped off later. If abrasive cleaners are used on the inside of the rear window, an electric defogger element may be damaged. Any temporary license should not be attached across the defogger grid.

Cleaning the Outside of the Windshield and Wiper Blades If the windshield is not clear after using the windshield washer, or if the wiper blade chatters when running, wax or other material may be on the blade or windshield. Clean the outside of the windshield with GM Windshield Cleaner, Bon-Ami Powder@ (GM Part No. 1050011). The windshield is clean if beads do not form when you rinse it with water. Clean the blade by wiping vigorously with a cloth soaked in full strength windshield washer solvent. Then rinse the blade with water. Wiper blades should be checked on a regular basis and replaced when worn.

Cleaning the Outside of Your Pontiac The paint finish on your vehicle provides beauty, depth of color, gloss retention and durability. Washing Your Vehicle The best way to preserve your vehicle’s finish is to keep it clean by washing it often with lukewarm or cold water. Don’t wash your vehicle in the direct rays of the sun. Don’t use strong soaps or chemical detergents. Use liquid hand, dish or car washing (non-detergent) soaps. Don’t use cleaning agents that contain acid or abrasives. All cleaning agents should be flushed promptly and not allowed to dry on the surface, or they could stain. Dry the finish with a soft, clean chamois or a 100% cotton towel to avoid surface scratches and water spotting. High pressure vehicle washes may cause water to enter your vehicle.

Service & Appearance Care

Aluminum Wheels (IF so EQUIPPED) Your aluminum wheels have a protective coating similar to the painted surface of your Pontiac. Don’t use strong soaps, chemicals, chrome polish, or other abrasive cleaners on them because you could damage this coating. After rinsing thoroughly, a wax may be applied.

If you have aluminum wheels, don’t use an automatic vehicle wash that has hard silicon carbide cleaning brushes. These brushes can take off the protective coating.

White Sidewall Tires Your Pontiac dealer has a GM White Sidewall Tire Cleaner. You can use a stiff brush with it. Weatherstrips These are places where glass or metal meets rubber. Silicone grease there will make them last longer, seal better, and not squeak. Apply silicone grease with a clean cloth at least every six months.

Finish Care Occasional waxing or mild polishing of your Pontiac may be necessary to remove residue from the paint finish. You can get GM approved cleaning products from your dealer. (See the Index under Appearance Care.) Your Pontiac has a “basecoatl clearcoat ” paint finish. The clearcoat gives more depth and gloss to the colored basecoat.

Machine compounding or aggressive polishing on a basecoatklearcoat paint finish may dull the finish or leave swirl marks.

Sheet Metal Damage If your vehicle is damaged and requires sheet metal repair or replacement, make sure the body repair shop applies anti- corrosion material to the parts repaired or replaced to restore corrosion protection.

Foreign Material Calcium chloride and other salts, ice melting agents, road oil and tar, tree sap, bird droppings, chemicals from industrial chimneys, and other foreign matter can damage your vehicle’s finish if they remain on painted surfaces. Use cleaners that are marked safe for painted surfaces for these stains.

Finish Damage Any stone chips, fractures or deep scratches in the finish should be repaired right away. Bare metal will corrode quickly and may develop into a major repair expense. Minor chips and scratches can be repaired with touch-up materials available from your dealer or other service outlets. Larger areas of finish damage can be corrected in your dealer’s body and paint shop.

Undenbody Maintenance Chemicals used for ice and snow removal and dust control can collect on the underbody. If these are not removed, accelerated corrosion (rust) can occur on the underbody parts such as fuel lines, frame, floor pan, and exhaust system even though they have corrosion protection. At least every spring, flush these materials from the underbody with plain water. Clean any areas where mud and other debris can collect. Dirt packed in closed areas of the frame should be loosened before being flushed. Your dealer or an underbody vehicle washing system can do this for you.

Chemical Paint Spotting Some weather and atmospheric conditions can create a chemical fallout. Airborne pollutants can fall upon and attack painted surfaces on your vehicle. This damage can take two forms: blotchy, ringlet-shaped discolorations, and small irregular dark spots etched into the paint surhce. Although no defect in the paint job causes this, Pontiac will repair, at no charge to the owner, the surfaces of new vehicles damaged by this fdlout condition within 12 months or l2,OOO miles (20 0oO km) of purchase, whichever comes first.

Vehicle Identification Number WIN) This is the legal identifier for your Pontiac. It appears on a plate in the front corner of the instrument panel, on the driver’s side. You can see it if you look through the windshield from outside your vehicle. The VIN also appears on the Vehicle Certification and Service Parts labels and the certificates of title and registration.

m .


Engine Identification The eighth character in your VIN is the engine code for your GM engine. This code will help you identify your engine, specifications, and replacement parts in this section.

Service Parts Identification Label You’ll find this label on your spare tire cover. It’s very helpful if you ever need to order parts. On this label is:

Your VIN. Its model designation. Paint information. A list of all production options and special equipment.

Be sure that this label is not removed from the vehicle.

Add-on Electrical Equipment

Don’t add anything electrical to your Pontiac unless you check with your dealer first. Some electrical equipment can damage your vehicle and the damage wouldn’t be covered by your warranty. Some of it can just keep other things from working as they should.

Fuses & Circuit Breakers The wiring circuits in your vehicle are protected from short circuits by a combination of fuses and circuit breakers. The main fuse panel is located to the left of the steering wheel, under the instrument panel. Pinch the release levers to lower the fuse panel for ease of viewing, then pull the fuse panel toward you to lock it down.

Snap off the cover to reveal the fuses. You’ll find a fuse puller clipped to the inside of the cover. Place the wide end of the fuse puller over the plastic end of the fuse. Squeeze the ends over the fuse and pull it out. Spare fuses are located in the slots labeled “Spare” on the following chart.

Look at the silver-colored band inside the fuse. If the band is broken or melted, replace the fuse. Be sure you replace a bad fuse with a new one of the correct size. When finished, replace the cover and pinch the release levers again to unlock the panel. Press it back up into place.
