Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1987 Chevrolet Chevette? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Your 1987 Chevette’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Chevette in the above table. Your Chevette may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chevrolet if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chevrolet Chevette. 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.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Chevette by considering your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Chevrolet Chevette

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Chevette? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Chevrolet Chevette engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Chevette 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
