2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet Cobalt’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 having your 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Cobalt in the above table. Your Cobalt 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 vehicle, 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, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Cobalt. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Chevrolet has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Cobalt’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Cobalt engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Chevrolet Cobalt engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Cobalt 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Cobalt exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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.
