Pontiac recommends having your 1999 Pontiac Montana’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Montana in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Montana may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Pontiac Montana

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Montana? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Pontiac Montana engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Pontiac oil on my own? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
