Regular oil changes can help improve the performance and fuel economy of your Chevrolet car, truck, or Crossover.

Certified Service technicians at your Chevrolet dealer are expertly trained to understand how your vehicle uses its oil and how it monitors oil life. So an oil change from your Certified Service experts not only gives you great service, convenience, and a great price, but you also receive the added value of our expertise on your Chevrolet vehicle.

SELECTING OIL FOR YOUR CHEVROLET

Choosing the proper grade of oil is a critical step in engine maintenance. From conventional to full synthetic, your Chevrolet Certified Service experts offer a range of oil types, including ACDelco Conventional Oil and ACDelco dexos1TM Synthetic Blend. Ask the experts which grade of oil you should use for your specific Chevrolet model. You can also check your Owner’s Manual for the correct grade.

ACDelco Conventional Oil

ACDelco Motor Oil only meets pre-2011 GM standards.

ACDelco dexos1 Synthetic Blend

Dexos1 synthetic blended oil is specifically engineered for Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles.

Engine Oil Life System

Most Chevrolet vehicles are equipped with an engine Oil Life Monitoring System.

Your Certified Service technician will reset your Oil Life Monitoring System after every oil change. To reset the system yourself, ask your technician how, or consult your Chevrolet vehicle Owner’s Manual if necessary.

 

Checking Your Oil Level

It’s a good idea to periodically check your oil level. In order to get an accurate reading, the oil must be warm, at normal operating temperature, and the vehicle must be on level ground. Always consult your vehicle Owner’s Manual for the proper procedure to check your oil level. You’ll get a more accurate dipstick reading by following those instructions.
