Chevrolet recommends having your 1985 Chevrolet C20’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 C20 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet C20. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1985 Chevrolet C20 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Chevrolet C20 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your C20’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet C20 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 C20 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
