When to Change 1990 Pontiac Grand Am Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Pontiac Grand Am? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Your 1990 Grand Am’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Grand Am in the above table. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your Grand Am may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Pontiac if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

1990 Pontiac Grand Am Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Grand Am engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Pontiac Grand Am engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Grand Am spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
