OIL CHANGE NEAR GRAYSLAKE, IL

Oil changes are a routine part of keeping your vehicle going and your engine in tip top shape. You probably heard it from your dad: “if you want that car to last, you better change your oil every 3,000 miles.” Your dad knew what he was talking about, although improvements in motor oil made the 3,000 mile rule a thing of the past. Regular oil changes are still the way to go to ensure engine longevity. Always refer to your Chevrolet vehicle Owner’s Manual for oil-change intervals for your specific vehicle.

The Certified Service technicians at Flag Chevrolet are expertly trained to understand how your vehicle uses its oil and how it monitors oil life. An oil change from a Certified Service technician not only gives you great service, convenience, and a great price, but you also get the added value of their expertise on your Chevrolet vehicle.

SELECT OIL FOR YOUR CHEVROLET

Choosing the proper grade of oil is a critical step in engine maintenance. From conventional to full synthetic the Chevrolet Certified Service experts at FLAG Chevrolet offer a range of oil types, including ACDelco Conventional Oil, ACDelco dexos1TM Full Synthetic, and Mobil™ Full Synthetic. Ask our 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.

These oils contain a variety of characteristics that can affect your vehicle’s performance, offer varying levels of engine protection, and can maximize the time between oil changes.

ENGINE OIL LIFE SYSTEM

Most Chevrolet vehicles are equipped with the engine Oil Life System (OLS). This system interprets your vehicle’s speed and engine temperature and continuously monitors operating conditions—which helps determine when it’s time for an oil change.

The OLS monitors a number of conditions including engine revolutions, engine temperature, and miles driven to let you know precisely when to come in for an oil change. As soon as the OLS light comes on, you know it’s time for service. It’s a simple, effective way to help you save money and help reduce oil waste.

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 Chevrolet 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.

The majority of today’s Chevrolet vehicles are equipped with the Engine Oil Life System, which has made the 3,000-mile oil change obsolete.

Always be sure to check your engine oil level regularly, even with an Engine Oil Life System.
