After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Chevrolet recommends having your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Avalanche 2500 in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Avalanche 2500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet Avalanche 2500. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
