When to Change 1989 Chevrolet Corvette Engine Oil

Need more info about 1989 Chevrolet Corvette oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 1989 Corvette’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 Corvette may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Corvette. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Chevrolet Corvette

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Corvette? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Corvette’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Corvette oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Corvette exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 damaged cylinder walls.
