When to Change 1989 Pontiac 6000 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac 6000’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1989 6000’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Pontiac if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac 6000. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1989 6000.

1989 Pontiac 6000 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac 6000? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 6000’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Pontiac oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
