Oil Change Q&A for Your 1995 Pontiac Grand Am

  • 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, overheat, 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.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Grand Am oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
