How Often to Get 1990 Chevrolet Blazer Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Chevrolet Blazer? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 changing your 1990 Blazer’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Blazer 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 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Blazer. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Chevrolet Blazer

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Blazer? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Blazer engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Blazer oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Blazer exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
