When to Change 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.”

Your 1999 Grand Prix’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Grand Prix in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Grand Prix may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

1999 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, overheat, and cause your Grand Prix’s 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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
