How Often to Change 2005 Pontiac Montana Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac Montana’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 changing your 2005 Montana’s oil 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Pontiac if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Montana. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Pontiac Montana?

Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2005 Pontiac Montana vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Montana's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check 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 Montana by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2005 Pontiac Montana

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Montana? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Pontiac Montana engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Montana oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Montana 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
