Engine Oil Life System

Is It Time to Change Your Oil?

Several signs indicate it is time for an oil change. A noisy engine suggests that your vehicle needs new oil and any excess exhaust. It would be best if you also looked at the texture of the oil. If it is gritty, then you need to get the oil changed.

The oil lubricates the engine, which helps the engine parts work together. So it's essential to the functioning of your vehicle that you have clean oil to help things work properly when you're out and about around Westminster.

Checking Your Oil Level

How Do You Need to Get the Oil Changed in Your Chevrolet?

You should consult with the owner's manual before changing the oil. Most Chevrolet vehicles need to have their oil changed every 5,000 miles. Three thousand miles was the recommendation for many years. However, you do not need to get the oil changed that often unless you regularly drive under serious conditions, like track driving, driving on gravel or sandy roads, stopping and going in hot weather, and towing a trailer for long distances.

What The Certified Service Experts Look For During Your Multi-point Vehicle Inspection

  • Remaining Engine Oil Life

A quick inspection will determine your vehicle's remaining oil life percentage (applicable to vehicles with the GM Oil Life System). This may be helpful, especially if you are approaching your next oil change.

  • Tire Wear

Your tires are what keep you moving safely down the road. The Certified Service experts check to make sure your tires are properly aligned, balanced, and in top shape. This will help ensure the optimum performance and safety of your vehicle.

  • Wiper Blades and Glass Condition

Your wiper blades are essential, especially when it's raining. The operation and condition of front and rear wipers are checked to make sure they will work well when you need them. A visual inspection of your windshield is completed to check for cracks or chips and the inspection may help prevent further damage down the road if these issues are addressed.

  • Fluid Levels

Fluid levels are checked, including the brake reservoir and windshield washer fluid, to be sure they are at optimal levels.

  • Brakes

To help keep your brakes performing at their best, an inspection is performed on the condition of your brake system, including lines, hoses, and the parking brake, as well as measurements of the front and rear linings.

  • Battery Condition and Connections

No one wants to be stuck with a dead battery! A quick battery test will determine the health of your battery, and a visual inspection will check to be sure the battery cables and connections are in top working order

  • OnStar Subscription

A brief assessment will make sure you are connected with your OnStar system subscription.

  • Additional Car Inspections

An additional vehicle inspection of critical systems is performed to check for visible leaks that might indicate a concern. The condition of other vehicle components is also visually inspected.

Oil Change FAQ

Q: Should the engine oil be replaced every 3,000 miles? 

A: Depending on the age of your vehicle, driving habits, and road conditions, your engine may be designed to go longer than 3,000 miles between oil changes. Always be sure to check your engine oil level regularly, even with an OLMS.

Q: Does regularly changing my oil filter help with the life of my engine?

A: Yes. An oil filter helps ensure your engine is lubricated with clean oil, which is important for optimal engine performance. Both your vehicle's oil and oil filter should be changed at least as often as recommended by your OLMS and/or Owner's Manual.

Benefits of Getting the Oil Changed

Regular oil changes help your engine last longer. Clean oil helps your engine run more smoothly, which also can help you get more miles per gallon. Additionally, oil changes can prevent your engine from overheating. Fresh oil allows the parts to move without creating friction. An oil change will allow the parts to generate less heat, helping to prevent an overheated engine.
