Pontiac recommends having your 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Grand Prix may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Grand Prix.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Grand Prix engine? 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’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Grand Prix oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 Prix spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
