How Often to Get 1991 Chevrolet C1500 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet C1500’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 1991 Chevrolet C1500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your C1500 in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your C1500 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 vehicle, or see an excess amount of 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet C1500. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Chevrolet C1500?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Chevrolet C1500. Chevrolet has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1991 Chevrolet C1500 vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your C1500's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check 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 C1500 by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1991 Chevrolet C1500

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet C1500? 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 C1500’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 C1500 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. 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? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
