Oil Changes for 1985 Chevrolet Caprice

How Often to Get 1985 Chevrolet Caprice Oil Changes

Need more info about 1985 Chevrolet Caprice oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 1985 Caprice’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Caprice may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet Caprice. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Chevrolet Caprice?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1985 Chevrolet Caprice motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Chevrolet has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1985 Caprice. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Caprice’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Caprice by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

1985 Chevrolet Caprice Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Caprice motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Chevrolet Caprice engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet Caprice oil at home? 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. 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
