Pontiac recommends changing your 1993 Grand Am’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

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.

1993 Pontiac Grand Am Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Grand Am engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Grand Am’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Pontiac oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
