When to Change 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Chevrolet Colorado? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2016 Chevrolet Colorado’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Colorado in the above table. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Colorado may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2016 Chevrolet Colorado?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Chevrolet Colorado. Chevrolet has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2016 Colorado. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Colorado’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Colorado by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

2016 Chevrolet Colorado Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Colorado motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Chevrolet Colorado engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Colorado spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
