2012 Chevrolet Camaro Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Camaro motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Chevrolet Camaro engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Camaro oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
