Oil Changes for 2010 Chevrolet Aveo5

How Often to Change 2010 Chevrolet Aveo5 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Chevrolet Aveo5? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Chevrolet recommends having your 2010 Chevrolet Aveo5’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Aveo5 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Aveo5. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Chevrolet Aveo5?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2010 Chevrolet Aveo5 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Chevrolet has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2010 Chevrolet Aveo5 vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Aveo5’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Aveo5 by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

2010 Chevrolet Aveo5 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Aveo5 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Aveo5’s 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 oil on my own? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Aveo5 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
