How Often to Get 1985 Pontiac Fiero Oil Changes

Need more info about 1985 Pontiac Fiero oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.”

Pontiac recommends having your 1985 Pontiac Fiero’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Fiero in the above table. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your Fiero may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac Fiero. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Pontiac Fiero Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1985 Pontiac Fiero motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Fiero by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1985 Pontiac Fiero Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Fiero engine? 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 eventually lead to Pontiac Fiero engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 Fiero spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
