How Often to Change 2006 Pontiac Solstice Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2006 Pontiac Solstice? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 2006 Pontiac Solstice’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Solstice in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Solstice may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Solstice. 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 Solstice Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Pontiac Solstice. Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2006 Solstice. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Solstice’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Pontiac Solstice

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Solstice 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 Solstice’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac Solstice oil at home? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Solstice spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
