Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac G8’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”
Pontiac recommends having your 2009 Pontiac G8’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your G8 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac G8. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.
Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Pontiac G8. Pontiac has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2009 G8. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your G8's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your G8 by considering your driving style, climate,
