When to Change 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Engine Oil

Need more info about 2018 Chevrolet Colorado oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”

Your 2018 Colorado’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Colorado. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

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 2018 Chevrolet Colorado motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

During your oil change service, 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, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Colorado by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2018 Chevrolet Colorado Oil Change Questions

  • 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 reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Chevrolet Colorado engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Colorado oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
