Chevrolet recommends changing your 2005 Astro’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Astro in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Astro may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chevrolet if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chevrolet Astro. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2005 Chevrolet Astro Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Astro? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Astro engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Astro oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Astro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
