Oil Change Q&A for Your 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport

  • What can low oil do to my Pontiac Trans Sport engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Pontiac Trans Sport 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
