1984 Pontiac Bonneville Oil Change

When to Change 1984 Pontiac Bonneville Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac Bonneville’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Pontiac recommends having your 1984 Pontiac Bonneville’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Bonneville may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Bonneville. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1984 Pontiac Bonneville Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Bonneville engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Bonneville’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Pontiac oil on my own? 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 Bonneville spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
