  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Unless you've had your engine, transmission, or rear end recently rebuilt, using stock spec, conventional oils and fluids are your safest bet. So 10W30 or 10W40 conventional motor oil, Dexron II or better conventional fluid for an automatic transmission, and a SAE 75W or SAE 85W diff oil (consult your owners manual for what oil type your car's rear end takes)..

Now if your motor, tranny, or rear end has been rebuilt recently, what does your rebuilder recommend? Otherwise stick with the conventional fluids. You can't go wrong.
