How Often to Change 2000 Pontiac Bonneville Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac Bonneville’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2000 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. Your Bonneville may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 terrain, 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.

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 2000 Bonneville. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Bonneville’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important 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 habits, weather and road conditions,

2000 Pontiac Bonneville Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Bonneville? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, 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 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
