When to Change 1994 Pontiac Trans Sport Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Pontiac Trans Sport’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 1994 Pontiac Trans Sport’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Trans Sport may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Trans Sport. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Pontiac Trans Sport?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Pontiac Trans Sport. Pontiac has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1994 Trans Sport. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Trans Sport’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Pontiac Trans Sport

  • Should I check my Pontiac Trans Sport motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Pontiac Trans Sport engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac Trans Sport oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 Trans Sport exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
