Chevy Vehicle Oil Type

Adding oil to engine

Knowing the right Chevy oil type for your vehicle is crucial to ensure optimum performance and a longer engine lifespan. Let’s dive deep into the specifics of the Chevy Equinox oil type and Chevy Malibu oil type, two of our most popular models, and see why choosing the right oil can make all the difference. However, it’s essential to consult your user’s manual or speak to a manufacturer for specific oil types, as some models may need different oils.



Chevy Equinox Oil Type

The Chevy Equinox, known for its dynamic drive and reliability, requires a specific oil type to keep it running smoothly for the Smithtown roads:

  • The standard 5W-30 full synthetic
  • In cold climates: choose 0W-30 full synthetic for 2.0L turbo Equinox models and 0W-20 for 1.5L turbo models

Chevy Malibu Oil Type

For the Chevy Malibu, a true icon in the Chevrolet lineup, the oil you choose can greatly influence its overall performance:

  • SAE 5W-30 or SAE 10W-30 dexos1 full synthetic oil
  • In cold climates (especially below zero): go with SAE 0W-30

Chevy Silverado Oil Type

While our focus here is on Equinox and Malibu, we also understand the needs of our Chevy Silverado Huntington drivers:

  • SAE 5W-30 dexos1 full synthetic oil (for a gasoline engine)
  • Use SAE 0W-20 dexosD diesel engine oil if you’ve got a Duramax turbodiesel engine because diesel engines are configured differently than gasoline engines
