How Often to Change 2004 Pontiac Bonneville Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2004 Pontiac Bonneville? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.

Pontiac recommends changing your 2004 Bonneville’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your Bonneville may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Bonneville by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

2004 Pontiac Bonneville Oil Change Q&A

  • 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 runs low, these parts can grind together, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac Bonneville oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Bonneville spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
