Best Oil for Chevy Silverado 1500

2023 Chevy Silverado 1500

Your Chevy Silverado is built to stand up to any challenges on the Carroll roads. But if you want your vehicle to go the extra mile, proper maintenance is a must. What’s the best oil for a Chevy Silverado 1500? The answer depends on your particular engine configuration and driving habits. Let’s take a look at some of your Chevy Silverado 1500 oil options, and get more tips from our team at Macke Motors, Inc.!



What’s the Best Oil for my Chevy Silverado 1500?

The recommended Chevy Silverado 1500 oil will depend on several factors. Here’s what you need to know before you schedule your next service visit:

  • Age: Is your Chevy old or new? Newer models tend to use a synthetic 0W-20 formulation, while a lot of older models thrive on 10W-30 or 5W-30 oil. Check your owner’s manual or ask our team for suggestions!
  • Driving Habits: Conventional oil is cheaper, but less durable than synthetic oil. If you use your Silverado for light commuting work around Fort Dodge, conventional is likely fine.
  • Towing: If you take part in heavy-duty towing around Lake View, you’ll want to switch to synthetic instead. This oil is longer lasting and more chemically stable than conventional, so it will stand up to more challenging work.

What’s the Best Oil Filter for a Chevy Silverado 1500?

When you get an oil change, it’s also a good time to invest in a new oil filter for your Chevy Silverado 1500. Your oil filter is designed to strain out any dust, dirt, or debris that may try to get into your engine. If you schedule your oil change service at Macke Motors, Inc., our team will automatically replace your old filter with a new filter. But if you’re doing your oil changes at home, feel free to stop by our parts department. Our team will help you find the right brand and size for your particular model!
