Oil Changes for 2009 Chevrolet Colorado

How Often to Change 2009 Chevrolet Colorado Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Chevrolet Colorado? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Chevrolet recommends having your 2009 Chevrolet Colorado’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Colorado may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chevrolet Colorado. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Chevrolet Colorado Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2009 Chevrolet Colorado motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Chevrolet has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2009 Colorado.

During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Colorado’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Colorado by considering your driving style, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Chevrolet Colorado

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Colorado engine? 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 Colorado’s 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 Colorado oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
