When to Change 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix? 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. 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.”

Pontiac recommends changing your 1984 Grand Prix’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Grand Prix in the above table. Your Grand Prix may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac Grand Prix. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Grand Prix’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Grand Prix by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1984 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Pontiac Grand Prix motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Grand Prix’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
