Chevrolet recommends changing your 1983 Camaro’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Camaro 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 notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chevrolet Camaro. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1983 Chevrolet Camaro

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Camaro? 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, overheat, and cause your Chevrolet Camaro engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet Camaro oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Camaro exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
