How Often to Change 1990 Pontiac LeMans Oil

Need more info about 1990 Pontiac LeMans oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Pontiac recommends changing your 1990 LeMans’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your LeMans may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac LeMans. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Pontiac LeMans Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1990 Pontiac LeMans motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Pontiac has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1990 LeMans. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your LeMans’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your LeMans by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

1990 Pontiac LeMans Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Pontiac LeMans motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Pontiac LeMans engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac LeMans oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 LeMans 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
