How Much Oil Does a Chevy Silverado Take?

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado with the 5.3L 8-cyl engine (engine code L82) takes 8 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 synthetic oil. The 6.2L Chevy Silverado takes 8 quarts of 0W-20 oil with a filter. The Chevy Silverado with a 6.6L 8-cyl engine (engine code L8T) takes 8 quarts (with filter) of 5W-30 synthetic oil. The Chevy Silverado with a 4.3L 6-cyl engine (engine code LV3) takes 5 quarts (with filter) of 5W-30 or 0W-20 synthetic oil. A new oil filter and a crush washer are required.

Your vehicle has a computer that lets you know when to change your engine oil. This is not based on mileage, but on engine revolutions and engine operating temperature. When the computer has calculated that the oil needs changing, the Oil Life Monitor will indicate that a change is necessary. The mileage between oil changes will vary depending on how you drive your vehicle — usually between 3,000 miles (5 000 km) and 7500 miles (12000 km) since your last oil change.

Under severe conditions, the indicator may come on before 3000 miles (5000 km). Never drive your vehicle more than 7,500 miles (12 500 km) or 12 months (whichever occurs first) without an oil change. The system won’t detect dust in the oil. So, if you drive in a dusty area, be sure to change your oil every 3,000 miles (5 000 km) or sooner. Remember to reset the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message whenever the oil is changed.

What Oil Does a 5.3 Silverado Take?

It takes 0W-20 oil. Chevy recommends changing the oil every seven to ten thousand miles.

What Is The Difference Between Synthetic Blend Oil Vs Full Synthetic Oil?

There are a few key differences between synthetic blend oil and full synthetic oil. Full synthetic oil is made entirely from man-made chemicals, while synthetic blend oil is a mixture of both man-made and natural chemicals. Full synthetic oil typically lasts longer and performs better in extreme temperatures than synthetic blend oil. Synthetic blend oil is usually less expensive than full synthetic oil. When it comes to the Chevy Silverado, Chevy recommends using full synthetic 0W-20 oil for optimal performance.

Why Do Cars Need An Oil Change?

Oil changes are important because they keep your engine clean and lubricated. Over time, oil breaks down and gets dirty, which can cause deposits to form on engine parts. These deposits can lead to decreased performance and increased wear and tear on your engine. Oil changes also ensure that your engine has the right amount of oil, which is necessary for proper lubrication. Chevy recommends changing the oil every seven to eight thousand miles or every six months, whichever comes first.

No matter how well you take care of your Chevy Silverado, eventually, it will need an oil change – it’s just a fact of life.
