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 2008 G6’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your G6 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac G6. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2008 Pontiac G6 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Pontiac G6 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Pontiac G6 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac G6 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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. 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 old cylinder walls.
