Oil Change Q&A for Your 1995 Chevrolet Astro

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Astro engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Chevrolet Astro engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
