How Often to Get 2005 Pontiac Bonneville Oil Changes

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. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 2005 Bonneville’s oil at regular 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2005 Pontiac Bonneville

  • Should I check my Pontiac Bonneville motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine 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.
  • 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 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
