Question about 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix
I live in san antonio texas so it does get hot here. I like my car and i wanna know besides my oil and air filter at this amount of highway miles what things should I have changed. I just don't want the mechanics to scam me. Thanks
A good thing to do is to tune your car up. get new spark plugs, spark plug cables fuel injectors help too and change your fuel filter. Also avoid letting your tank get too low because that will cause al of the crusty *** sediment at the bottom of your tank to be sent through your engine and that sucks *** too. I added a flowmaster and a K&N to my 06 GP. it adds horsepower,sounds cool and increases gas mileage. But i'll tell you this if you enjoy driving fast and listening to the engine rev and your exhaust rumbling you wont get better gas mileage. you have to control your urge to floor it.. I used to get about 200miles per half tank and I am at about 250 now as long as i use the cruise and try not to race anyone.

You will also want to consider your trans fluid and filter, and you should have grease fittings on your ball joints, tie rod ends, and other places up front, you will want to get them re greased. Of course your fuel filter, and also, with such heat and strain on your motor, you will want to get a radiator flush everyonce in a while to prevent gumming, and clogs. Other than that, and the things you already know about, you shouldn't have any problems, pontiac is really reliable as well, so good luck.
