How Often to Get 1995 Pontiac Sunfire Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac Sunfire’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Pontiac recommends having your 1995 Pontiac Sunfire’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Sunfire in the above table. Your Sunfire may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Pontiac if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac Sunfire. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Pontiac Sunfire?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Pontiac Sunfire. Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1995 Sunfire. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Sunfire's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Sunfire by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1995 Pontiac Sunfire Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Sunfire? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Sunfire’s 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 Sunfire oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
