1994 Pontiac Sunbird Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Sunbird? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Pontiac Sunbird engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Sunbird 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Sunbird exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
