How Often to Get 1990 Chevrolet Corvette Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Chevrolet Corvette? Turn to 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 1990 Corvette’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 Corvette may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Chevrolet Corvette. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Chevrolet Corvette?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Chevrolet Corvette. Chevrolet has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1990 Corvette. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Corvette's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 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 parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Corvette engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet oil on my own? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
