How Often to Change 1984 Pontiac Parisienne Oil

Need more info about 1984 Pontiac Parisienne oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 1984 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 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Pontiac Parisienne. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing 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 1984 Pontiac Parisienne motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Pontiac has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1984 Parisienne. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Parisienne’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 free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Parisienne by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1984 Pontiac Parisienne

  • Should I check my Pontiac Parisienne motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Pontiac Parisienne engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Pontiac oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Parisienne exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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 damaged cylinder walls.
