Chevrolet recommends having your 1995 Chevrolet C3500’s motor oil changed at regular 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chevrolet C3500. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1995 Chevrolet C3500 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Chevrolet C3500 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet C3500 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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 worn cylinder walls.
