1984 Pontiac J2000 Sunbird Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Pontiac J2000 Sunbird motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Pontiac J2000 Sunbird engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Pontiac J2000 Sunbird oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac J2000 Sunbird spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
