Pontiac recommends changing your 1990 6000’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

1990 Pontiac 6000 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Pontiac 6000 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Pontiac 6000 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac 6000 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac 6000 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 worn cylinder walls.
