Oil Changes for 2010 Chevrolet Corvette

How Often to Change 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Chevrolet Corvette? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Chevrolet recommends changing your 2010 Corvette’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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 areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Chevrolet Corvette

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Corvette engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Corvette engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
