Oil Changes for 1987 Chevrolet Camaro

How Often to Change 1987 Chevrolet Camaro Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet Camaro’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Chevrolet recommends having your 1987 Chevrolet Camaro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Camaro 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet Camaro. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1987 Chevrolet Camaro Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Camaro motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
