Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1997 Chevrolet Camaro? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”
Your 1997 Camaro’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Camaro may need an oil change 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 might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chevrolet if you regularly 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. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Chevrolet Camaro. Chevrolet has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1997 Camaro. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Camaro's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Camaro by considering your driving habits, climate,
