When to Change 2017 Chevrolet Camaro Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet Camaro’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Chevrolet recommends having your 2017 Chevrolet Camaro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Camaro may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Chevrolet Camaro?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 Chevrolet Camaro motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Chevrolet has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2017 Camaro. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Camaro’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Camaro by considering your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Chevrolet Camaro

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Camaro motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Camaro engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
