How Often to Change 2006 Chevrolet Aveo Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2006 Chevrolet Aveo? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 changing your 2006 Aveo’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Aveo may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Aveo. 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 Aveo Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2006 Chevrolet Aveo motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Chevrolet has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2006 Chevrolet Aveo vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Aveo's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Aveo by taking into account your driving habits, and odometer.

2006 Chevrolet Aveo Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Aveo motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Aveo’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Aveo oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Aveo spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
