When to Change 2008 Chevrolet Aveo Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet Aveo’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Chevrolet recommends having your 2008 Chevrolet Aveo’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Aveo may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2008 Chevrolet Aveo motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Chevrolet has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2008 Aveo. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Aveo's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2008 Chevrolet Aveo Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Aveo engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Aveo engine failure. 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
