Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Pontiac LeMans

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac LeMans? 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 LeMans’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac LeMans oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 LeMans exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
