Your 1989 C3500’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your C3500 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your C3500 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet C3500. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Chevrolet C3500

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet C3500? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Chevrolet C3500 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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
