1990 Chevrolet Caprice Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Caprice engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Caprice engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Caprice oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Caprice spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 damaged cylinder walls.
