Oil Changes for 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche

How Often to Get 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 2010 Avalanche’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Avalanche 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 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, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet Avalanche. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Avalanche motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Avalanche engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Avalanche oil at home? 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 Avalanche spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
