Oil Change Services in Marin County
Oil change - the
Regular oil changes can help improve the performance and fuel economy of your Chevrolet car, truck, or SUV. Many
older-model Chevrolet vehicles, including those manufactured without or before the creation of the Oil Life
Monitoring System, require oil changes at 3,000-mile intervals. However, thanks to advances in engine
technologies, newer models have a much longer range between oil changes. Always refer to your Chevrolet vehicle
Owner's Manual for oil-change intervals for your specific vehicle.
Certified Service technicians at our Chevy dealership near (nearby-city-1) 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.

synthetic, your Chevrolet Certified Service experts at Novato Chevrolet of Marin County offer a

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 also monitors your personal driving habits and the area's climate conditions to let you know precisely when to come in for an oil change. It's a simple, effective way to 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.
