When to Change 1992 Pontiac Trans Sport Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac Trans Sport’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 1992 Pontiac Trans Sport’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Trans Sport may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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 long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Trans Sport. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1992 Pontiac Trans Sport Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Trans Sport? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Trans Sport’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Pontiac Trans Sport 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 Trans Sport spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
