1989 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Pontiac recommends having your 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 engine knocking, 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Grand Prix. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Pontiac has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1989 Grand Prix. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Grand Prix’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and odometer.

1989 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, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Pontiac Grand Prix 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
