How Often to Get 1989 Pontiac Grand Am Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1989 Pontiac Grand Am? Get the advice you need at 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.”

Pontiac recommends having your 1989 Pontiac Grand Am’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your Grand Am may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Grand Am. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1989 Pontiac Grand Am Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Grand Am? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Pontiac Grand Am engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Grand Am oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Grand Am 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
