When to Change 1999 Pontiac Bonneville Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Pontiac Bonneville? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”

Your 1999 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. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your Bonneville may need an oil change 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac Bonneville. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Pontiac Bonneville Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Pontiac Bonneville. Pontiac has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1999 Bonneville. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, 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 the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Bonneville by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

1999 Pontiac Bonneville Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Pontiac Bonneville motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Pontiac Bonneville engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
