1992 Chevrolet Corvette Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Corvette engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
