Pontiac recommends having your 2000 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, smell oil inside the car, 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Firebird. 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 2000 Pontiac Firebird

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Firebird engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Firebird’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac Firebird oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also with your vehicle 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
