Pontiac recommends having your 1984 Pontiac 6000’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 6000 in the above table. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your 6000 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac 6000. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1984 Pontiac 6000

  • Should I check my Pontiac 6000 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Pontiac 6000 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac 6000 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac 6000 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
