When to Change 2018 Chevrolet Camaro Engine Oil

Need more info about 2018 Chevrolet Camaro oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 changing your 2018 Camaro’s oil at regular 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2018 Chevrolet Camaro?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2018 Chevrolet Camaro motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Camaro by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Camaro? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Camaro engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
