Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1986 Pontiac Fiero? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1986 Fiero’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Fiero in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Fiero may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Pontiac if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Fiero. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1986 Pontiac Fiero Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Pontiac Fiero motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Fiero’s 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Fiero exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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.
