Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2013 Chevrolet Captiva Sport’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Captiva Sport may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Captiva Sport. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Chevrolet Captiva Sport

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Captiva Sport engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Captiva Sport’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Captiva Sport oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
