Chevrolet recommends having your 1999 Chevrolet Camaro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Camaro in the above table. Your Camaro may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Camaro. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Chevrolet Camaro Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1999 Chevrolet Camaro motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Chevrolet has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1999 Camaro.

During your oil change service, a technician will change your Camaro's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Camaro by considering your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Chevrolet Camaro

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Camaro motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Camaro engine failure. 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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 damaged cylinder walls.
