When to Change 2006 Pontiac Montana Engine Oil

Need more info about 2006 Pontiac Montana oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2006 Montana’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Montana in the above table. Your Montana may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. 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?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Pontiac Montana. Pontiac has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2006 Montana. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Montana’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Montana by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2006 Pontiac Montana Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Pontiac Montana motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Montana spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
