How Often to Change 1991 Chevrolet Caprice Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet Caprice’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1991 Caprice’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Caprice may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

1991 Chevrolet Caprice Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Caprice? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Chevrolet Caprice engine to fail. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Caprice exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
