How Often to Change 1995 Pontiac Bonneville Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1995 Pontiac Bonneville? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.”

Your 1995 Bonneville’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac Bonneville. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Pontiac Bonneville Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1995 Pontiac Bonneville motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Pontiac has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1995 Bonneville. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Bonneville’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Bonneville by considering your driving style, and odometer.

1995 Pontiac Bonneville Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Bonneville engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Pontiac Bonneville engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Bonneville oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Bonneville spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 damaged cylinder walls.
