Oil Change Q&A for Your 1991 Chevrolet S10

  • Should I check my Chevrolet S10 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your S10’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 S10 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
