Pontiac recommends changing your 1985 Parisienne’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your Parisienne may need an oil change 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. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Pontiac if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1985 Pontiac Parisienne Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Pontiac Parisienne motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 Parisienne exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
