Part A: Scheduled Maintenance Services Using Your Maintenance Schedule We at General Motors want to help you keep your vehicle in good working condition. But we don’t know exactly how you’ll drive it. You may drive very short distances only a few times a week. Or you may drive long distances all the time in very hot, dusty weather. You may use your vehicle in making deliveries. Or you may drive it to work, to do errands or in many other ways. Because of all the different ways people use their GM vehicles, maintenance needs vary. You may even need more frequent checks and replacements than you’ll find in the schedules in this section. So please read this If you have any section and note how you drive. questions on’how to keep your vehicle condition, see your Pontiac dealer. This part tells you the maintenance services you should have done and when you should schedule them. If you go to your dealer for your service needs, you’ll know that GM-trained and supported service people will perform the work using genuine GM parts.

The proper fluids and lubricants to use are listed in Part D. Make sure whoever services your vehicle uses all necessary these. All parts should be replaced and repairs done before you or anyone else drives the vehicle. These schedules are for vehicles that:


carry passengers and cargo within recommended limits. You will find these limits on your vehicle’s Tire-Loading Information label. See “Loading Your Vehicle” in the Index. are driven on reasonable road surfaces within legal driving limits. use the recommended fuel. See “Fuel” in the Index.


Selecting the Right Schedule First you’ll need to decide which of the two schedules is right for your vehicle. Here’s how to decide which schedule to follow:


..i


Maintenance Schedule I Short Trip/City Definition


Follow the Short Trip/City Maintenance Schedule if my one of these conditions is true for your vehicle:


Most trips are less than 5 to 10 miles (8 to 16 h). This is particularly important when outside temperatures are below freezing.


Most trips are through dusty areas. You frequently tow a trailer QT use a carrier on top of your vehicle. (With some models, you should never tow a trailer. See “Towing a Trailer” in the Index.) If the vehicle is used for delivery service, police, taxi, or other commercial application.


One of the reasom you should follow this schedule if you operate your vehicle under any of these conditions is that these conditions cause engine oil to break down suoner.
