When to Change 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier Engine Oil

Need more info about 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 1991 Cavalier’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Cavalier in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Cavalier may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chevrolet Cavalier. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1991 Chevrolet Cavalier Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Cavalier? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Cavalier engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet Cavalier oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Cavalier spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
