How Often to Get 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1998 Chevrolet C1500? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 changing your 1998 C1500’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet C1500. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1998 Chevrolet C1500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet C1500? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your C1500’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 C1500 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 damaged cylinder walls.
