How Often to Change 2020 Chevrolet Colorado Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2020 Chevrolet Colorado? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.

Your 2020 Colorado’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Chevrolet-recommended oil change intervals, your Colorado may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Chevrolet Colorado Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2020 Chevrolet Colorado motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Chevrolet has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2020 Chevrolet Colorado vehicles.

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 courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Colorado by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2020 Chevrolet Colorado Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Colorado motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
