  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

No need to yet.

The LNJ is basically like the LA1. Comes with iridium plugs that are good for 90K-100K.

Change the fuel filter, run a good fuel injector cleaner, change/clean the air filter, oil change, and you're pretty much done.

Change the transmission filter, and refill with fresh trans fluid. (DexMerc) The DexCool, flush out if needed and refill.

Somebody doesn't know iridium plugs. They burn at a high temp, and with the coilpack delivering a high charge, that doesn't happen. I changed my OEM iridium plugs at 92K, they were worn, but zero excessive carbon buildup.

These aren't copper plugs, dude.
