Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Cavalier engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Cavalier engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet Cavalier oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 Cavalier exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
