Need more info about 1997 Chevrolet Astro oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”
Your 1997 Astro’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Astro may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chevrolet if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Astro. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.
Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Chevrolet Astro. Chevrolet has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1997 Chevrolet Astro vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Astro's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Astro by taking into account your driving habits, climate,
