When to Change 1990 Chevrolet Corsica Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Chevrolet Corsica? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 1990 Corsica’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Corsica may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Corsica. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1990 Chevrolet Corsica Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Corsica motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Chevrolet Corsica engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Corsica oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Corsica spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
