When to Change 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 having your 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Grand Prix may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Pontiac Grand Prix. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Pontiac Grand Prix?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1990 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 1990 Grand Prix. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Grand Prix's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1990 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Pontiac Grand Prix motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, 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 Grand Prix oil at home? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Grand Prix spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
