OIL CHANGE

Oil change – the 3,000-mile 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 expertly trained to understand how your vehicle uses its oil and how it monitors oil life. An oil change from a Certified Service technician not only gives you great service, convenience, and a great price, but you also get the added value of their expertise on your Chevrolet vehicle.
 

Plus, with Chevrolet Complete Care select scheduled maintenance services are covered in the first 2 years or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first)—including up to two oil changes and four-tire rotation.

 

For 2019 models, Chevrolet Complete Care includes your first required maintenance visit within the first year of vehicle delivery providing an oil change, tire rotation and a Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection. Corvette coverage provides two maintenance visits within the first 12 months from vehicle delivery. Bolt EV coverage provides a tire rotation and multi-point vehicle inspection within the first 12 months from vehicle delivery. Volt is one service visit within the first 24 months from vehicle delivery.

Selecting oil for your Chevrolet

Choosing the proper grade of oil is a critical step in engine maintenance. From conventional to full synthetic, your Chevrolet Certified Service experts offer a range of oil types, including ACDelco Conventional Oil, ACDelco dexos1TM Full Synthetic, and Mobil 1TM Full Synthetic. Ask the experts which grade of oil you should use for your specific Chevrolet model. You can also check your Owner’s Manual for the correct grade.

 

These oils contain a variety of characteristics that affect your vehicle’s performance, offer varying levels of engine protection, and can extend the time between oil changes.

ACDelco Conventional Oil

Engine oil life system

Most Chevrolet vehicles are equipped with the engine Oil Life System (OLS). This system interprets your vehicle’s speed and engine temperature and continuously monitors operating conditions—which helps determine when it’s time for an oil change. The OLS also monitors your personal driving habits and the area’s climate conditions to let you know precisely when to come in for an oil change. As soon as the OLS light comes on, you know it’s time for service. It’s a simple, effective way to save money and help reduce oil waste.

Checking your oil level

It’s a good idea to periodically check your oil level. 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.

Oil Change Questions

Q: What do I need to do when my “Change Engine Oil Soon” message displays?

A: When the “Change Engine Oil Soon” message appears, oil change service is necessary for the vehicle as soon as possible, within the next 600 miles.

If driving under the best conditions, the Engine Oil Life System might not indicate the need for vehicle service for more than a year. The motor oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and the Engine Oil Life System will need to be reset. Your Chevrolet dealer has Certified Service expert technicians who will perform this work and reset the system. Click here to schedule service.

Q: How can I be sure to get the correct type of motor oil for my vehicle?

A: Consult your vehicle Owner’s Manual or visit the Certified Service experts at your Chevrolet dealer to be sure you get the proper oil for your vehicle. For 2011 or newer vehicles, dexos1TM Full Synthetic is the recommended oil specification (dexos1TM for gasoline engines, dexos2TM for light-duty diesel engines, 15W40 CJ-4 for Duramax diesel engines). Advantages of dexos1TM Full Synthetic over conventional motor oil include improved oil performance and protection, increased piston cleanliness, reduced oil consumption, and greater viscosity control.

Q: I’ve heard that I should change my oil every 3,000 miles. Is that still true?

A: The majority of today’s Chevrolet vehicles are equipped with the Engine Oil Life System, which has made the 3,000-mile oil change obsolete. Depending on the age of the vehicle, driving habits, and road conditions, vehicles with today’s advanced engines can go much longer than 3,000 miles between oil changes. Always be sure to check your engine oil level regularly, even with an Engine Oil Life System.
