2006 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac Grand Prix’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Grand Prix in the above table. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your Grand Prix may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle 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. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2006 Grand Prix. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs 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 visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Grand Prix by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Grand Prix? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Pontiac Grand Prix engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Grand Prix oil at home? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
