How Often to Get 2017 Chevrolet Colorado Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet Colorado’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Chevrolet recommends changing your 2017 Colorado’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Colorado may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you 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, 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.

Chevrolet has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2017 Colorado. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Colorado’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Colorado by taking into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

2017 Chevrolet Colorado Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Colorado? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Colorado engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet Colorado oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
