When to Change 1999 Chevrolet Corvette Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet Corvette’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1999 Corvette’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Corvette in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Corvette may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chevrolet Corvette. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1999 Chevrolet Corvette Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Chevrolet Corvette motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Chevrolet Corvette engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Corvette oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Corvette exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
