Chevrolet recommends having your 1991 Chevrolet C3500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your C3500 in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your C3500 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.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet C3500. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1991 Chevrolet C3500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet C3500? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet C3500 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 C3500 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet C3500 exhaust smoke grayish 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
