How Often to Get 1984 Pontiac Phoenix Oil Changes

Need more info about 1984 Pontiac Phoenix oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Pontiac recommends having your 1984 Pontiac Phoenix’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Phoenix may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac Phoenix. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Pontiac Phoenix?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1984 Pontiac Phoenix motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Pontiac has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1984 Phoenix.

During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Phoenix’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Phoenix by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1984 Pontiac Phoenix Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Phoenix engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Pontiac Phoenix engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Phoenix 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac exhaust smoke gray 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
