Pontiac recommends having your 1992 Pontiac Firebird’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Firebird in the above table. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your Firebird 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 might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Pontiac if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Firebird. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1992 Pontiac Firebird Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Firebird engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Firebird’s 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 Firebird oil at home? 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. 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 Firebird exhaust smoke grayish 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
