2003 Pontiac Bonneville Oil Change Q&A

  • 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 excess heat, and eventually lead to Pontiac Bonneville engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
