2007 Pontiac G5 Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2007 Pontiac G5 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac G5’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Pontiac recommends having your 2007 Pontiac G5’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your G5 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac G5. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2007 Pontiac G5?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2007 Pontiac G5 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Pontiac has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2007 G5. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your G5’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your G5 by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2007 Pontiac G5

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac G5? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Pontiac G5 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac G5 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
