Chevrolet recommends having your 1989 Chevrolet C2500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your C2500 in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your C2500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet C2500. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1989 Chevrolet C2500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet C2500? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet C2500 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet C2500 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet C2500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
