How Often to Get 1991 Pontiac 6000 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac 6000’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Pontiac recommends changing your 1991 6000’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 6000 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess 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 terrain, 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Pontiac 6000?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Pontiac 6000. Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1991 Pontiac 6000 vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your 6000’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 6000 by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1991 Pontiac 6000 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac 6000? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
