Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac Firebird’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties.

Pontiac recommends having your 2002 Pontiac Firebird’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Firebird may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Pontiac if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

2002 Pontiac Firebird Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Pontiac Firebird motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Pontiac Firebird engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Pontiac oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Firebird spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
