1994 Pontiac Grand Am Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Grand Am engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Pontiac Grand Am engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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 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 Grand Am exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
