Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Pontiac Firebird

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Firebird engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Pontiac Firebird engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Firebird oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 Firebird 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
