Your 1983 Phoenix’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

1983 Pontiac Phoenix Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Phoenix engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Pontiac Phoenix engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Phoenix 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
