When to Change 1998 Chevrolet Corvette Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet Corvette’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Chevrolet recommends having your 1998 Chevrolet Corvette’s motor oil changed at regular 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 vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

1998 Chevrolet Corvette Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Corvette engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Chevrolet Corvette 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 Corvette 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
