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.
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.
