Oil Changes for 2007 Pontiac G6

When to Change 2007 Pontiac G6 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac G6’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.”

Your 2007 G6’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your G6 in the above table. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your G6 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Pontiac G6. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Pontiac G6?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2007 Pontiac G6 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2007 G6. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your G6's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your G6 by considering your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2007 Pontiac G6

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac G6? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Pontiac G6 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 G6 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 G6 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
