1993 Pontiac Trans Sport Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Trans Sport engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Pontiac Trans Sport engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Pontiac oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
