2008 Chevrolet Corvette Oil Change

How Often to Change 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 Chevrolet Corvette? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Chevrolet recommends having your 2008 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Chevrolet recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Corvette’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car 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 preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 Chevrolet Corvette

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Corvette engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Corvette engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Corvette oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Corvette spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
