When to Change 2010 Pontiac Vibe Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Pontiac Vibe? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2010 Vibe’s oil should be changed according to Pontiac’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Vibe in the above table. Outside of Pontiac-recommended oil change intervals, your Vibe may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Pontiac Vibe. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2010 Pontiac Vibe motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Pontiac has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2010 Vibe.

During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Vibe’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the 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 mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Pontiac Vibe

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Vibe? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Vibe’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac Vibe oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 Vibe exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
