1983 Pontiac Parisienne Oil Change

How Often to Change 1983 Pontiac Parisienne Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac Parisienne’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Pontiac recommends having your 1983 Pontiac Parisienne’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Parisienne may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, 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 Parisienne. 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 Parisienne Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1983 Pontiac Parisienne motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1983 Pontiac Parisienne vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Parisienne’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Parisienne by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1983 Pontiac Parisienne

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Parisienne? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Pontiac Parisienne engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
