Oil changes are one of the most frequent and common car maintenance issues. They're also one of the quickest and least expensive car services available. So, why do drivers tend to put their oil and filter change off? We don't know, but we don't recommend it.

Why Are Oil Changes So Important?

Your Chevy's engine comes with many moving parts that require lubrication to do their job correctly. Not only does the oil lubricate these parts, but it also cleans and cools along the way. This helps keep your car's engine running strong no matter where your journey takes you. Because of all of the hard work the oil does, it will deteriorate with use. If left unchanged, this oil will harm your car's engine, costing you more for a larger engine repair.

When Do I Need To Schedule An Oil Change?

Most modern Chevrolet vehicles will alert you with a change oil warning light. Your oil will most likely need to be changed between every 7,500 and 10,000 miles or at least once a year.

How Long Does An Oil Change Take?

This all depends on what type of Chevy vehicle you're driving and what type of oil and filter your car requires. Typically, an oil and filter change takes about 20 to 40 minutes.

How Much Is An Oil Change?

This also varies depending on what type of car you have and what type of oil and filter is used. Generally, synthetic oil costs more than conventional oil, but tends to last longer. You'll want to discuss your oil change options with one of our certified Chevy technicians to know more.
