Pontiac recommends changing your 1984 T1000’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your T1000 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac T1000. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1984 Pontiac T1000 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Pontiac T1000 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Pontiac T1000 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 T1000 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
