Oil Changes for 1988 Chevrolet Celebrity

How Often to Get 1988 Chevrolet Celebrity Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet Celebrity’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 1988 Celebrity’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Celebrity may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chevrolet if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Celebrity. 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.

1988 Chevrolet Celebrity Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Celebrity? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Celebrity’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Celebrity oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Celebrity 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
