Chevy Silverado 1500 Oil Options

Choosing the Best Oil for Your Chevy Silverado 1500

The best oil for your vehicle in East Hills or Bayside depends on what type of engine is under the hood, including whether it’s a gas or diesel vehicle. The type of climate you live in makes a difference too.

Don’t forget to factor in the way in which you drive your Silverado as well. There’s two main types of driving your truck: as a hauling vehicle or as a daily driver. If you use your truck to haul or tow heavy loads, you’ll want an oil that has a higher viscosity. However, if you’re just using your vehicle for a daily driver, you’ll want to use a different oil entirely.

Not sure if conventional or synthetic oil is the right choice for your Chevy Silverado 1500? You’ll want to take a look at your owner’s manual for your Chevy Silverado 1500 oil. If you drive your Silverado as a daily driver, you’ll probably be able to do fine with a less expensive conventional oil or a blend. If you have a harder-working truck, you’ll want to consider a synthetic oil.

Your Chevy Silverado Oil Options

Viscosity is the most important factor when choosing Chevy Silverado 1500 oil. Most newer Silverados do great with a synthetic oil rated 0W-20. Older models will do best with a 5W-30 or 10W-30 oil. Check your owner’s manual to be sure.

The Best Oil Filter for Your Chevy Silverado 1500

You’ll want an oil filter for Chevy Silverado 1500 too. We suggest getting an OEM oil filter from the Major World Chevrolet parts department in Long Island City near Forest Hills. It’s guaranteed to fit and won’t damage your engine!
