After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2005 Aztek’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Aztek may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac Aztek. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2005 Pontiac Aztek Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Aztek engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Aztek’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac Aztek oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 Aztek spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
