Oil Change - Changing The 3,000-mile Oil Myth

Regular oil changes can help improve the performance and fuel economy of your Chevrolet car, truck, or SUV. Many older model Chevrolet vehicles, including those manufactured without or before the creation of the Oil Life Monitoring System, require oil changes at 3,000-mile intervals. However, thanks to advances in engine technologies, newer models have a much longer range between oil changes. Always refer to your Chevrolet Vehicle Owner’s Manual for oil change intervals for your specific vehicle.

Certified Service technicians at your Chevrolet dealer are trained to understand how your vehicle uses its oil and how it monitors oil life. So an oil change from a Certified Service technician not only gives you great service, convenience, and a great price, but you also receive the added value of our expertise on when the time is right for your Chevrolet.

What’s more, the Certified Service technicians at your Chevrolet dealer can provide a detailed vehicle inspection with oil change services, so you can be sure you get the most service value from each maintenance visit. Head down the Certified Service lane at your Chevrolet dealer when it’s time for your vehicle’s next oil change.


Engine Oil Life System
Most Chevrolet vehicles are now equipped with the Engine Oil Life System (OLS). This system actually senses your vehicle’s speed and engine temperature and can continuously monitor operating conditions. This helps determine when it’s time to change the oil.

This Oil Life System (OLS) can actually monitor your personal driving habits and your area’s climate conditions to let you know precisely when to come in for an oil change. When the OLS light comes on, you come in. It’s that simple. It’ll help you save money and help reduce oil waste.

Your Certified Service technician will reset your Oil Life System after an oil change. If you would like to reset the system yourself, ask your technician how, or consult your Chevrolet Vehicle Owner’s Manual if necessary.

Checking Your Oil Level
It is a good idea to check the engine oil level at each fuel fill. In order to get an accurate reading, the oil must be warm, at normal operating temperature, and the vehicle must be on level ground. Always consult your Chevrolet Vehicle Owner’s Manual for the proper procedure to check your oil level. You’ll get a more accurate dipstick reading by following those instructions.
