How Often to Change 2019 Chevrolet Equinox Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2019 Chevrolet Equinox? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 2019 Chevrolet Equinox’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Equinox may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Equinox. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Chevrolet Equinox?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2019 Chevrolet Equinox motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Chevrolet has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2019 Equinox. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Equinox’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Equinox by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2019 Chevrolet Equinox Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Equinox? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Equinox engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Equinox 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. 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 Equinox spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
