How Often to Get 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Pontiac recommends changing your 1995 Grand Prix’s oil 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 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 areas, adventure off-road, 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.

1995 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Grand Prix? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Pontiac Grand Prix engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
