Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1987 Pontiac Bonneville? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.
Pontiac recommends having your 1987 Pontiac Bonneville’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Bonneville may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1987 Pontiac Bonneville motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1987 Bonneville. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Bonneville's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important 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 Bonneville by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.
