When to Change 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche Engine Oil

Need more info about 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2007 Avalanche’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Avalanche in the above table. Your Avalanche may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chevrolet Avalanche. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Chevrolet Avalanche Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Chevrolet Avalanche. Chevrolet has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2007 Avalanche. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Avalanche’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Avalanche by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2007 Chevrolet Avalanche Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Avalanche engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Chevrolet Avalanche 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 Avalanche oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
