2009 Pontiac G6 Oil Change

How Often to Change 2009 Pontiac G6 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac G6’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”

Pontiac recommends changing your 2009 G6’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 engine knocking, 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Pontiac G6 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2009 Pontiac G6 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Pontiac has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2009 Pontiac G6 vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your G6’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your G6 by taking into account your driving habits, and odometer.

2009 Pontiac G6 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac G6? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Pontiac G6 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. 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 G6 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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.
