How Often to Get 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Changes

Need more info about 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1993 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Pontiac has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1993 Grand Prix. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Grand Prix’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car 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.

1993 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Grand Prix engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much 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 Grand Prix oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
