Your Chevette may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet Chevette. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1983 Chevrolet Chevette

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Chevette engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Chevette’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet Chevette oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 Chevette spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 damaged cylinder walls.
