When Do I Have to Change 2006 Chevy Trailblazer Engine Oil?

Are you saying you have never changed the oil at all? If you have owned this vehicle since 2006 and never changed the oil then I do not know how that could be possible and it's still running. That oil has to be thicker than mud and so dirty and black that your engine must be having a hard time running. You are suppose to change your oil every 3,000 - 5,000 miles depending on how often you drive and if you drive a lot of highway or city driving. If it's more highway than city then every 5,000 is good. I have a new 2009 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Pick Up that I bought last year and I was told to change the oil every 7,500 miles cause it's new. I still always have it done every 3,000 cause I want to really take good care of it and extend the life of the engine. I do more city driving anyway. I never heard of a message coming on that says that. Usually a check engine or oil light comes on. I would get the oil changed right away. It may mean you are a quart of oil low cause you have not changed it and the engine is getting hot cause the oil is to thick and dirty for it to run threw the engine properly. Your gonna ruin the engine if you do not change the oil more often. You should check the oil once a month to be on the safe side. Make sure it is clean and the level is good on the dip stick.

1. how can I tell that my car engine oil needs changing?

ok so first off observe the color it is ok if it is lighter than a dark brown you dont wanna have a dark brown to black color it means its burnt. also this is weird but takesoome off the dipstick and smel it if it smells burnt its bad and also rub it between your fingers to see f there are bits of metal in it if there is that it is bad

2. What type of motor oil do Harley Davidson motorcycles use? Synthetic oil?

Harley makes their own oil . Use it. Unless u ride in extremely severe conditions, synthetic oil is a waste of money. Never use automobile oil, or any water cooled engine oil. Some deseil oils can work in an emergency. water cooled engines and air cooled engines run at different temps. I've owned a bunch of HDs and none of them had oil coolers. I have an o8 street glide now, it does not have an oil cooler and it ai not gonna get one.

3. Im looking into buying a classic chevy truck ('66)?

They can make great daily drivers. The truck is over 40 years old so you count on some problems coming up but those old trucks are extremely easy to work on (a pair of vise grips can fix most problems) and parts are exceptionally cheap. I own and drive a 68 Ford F-250 on a regular Basis.The biggest problem that I have is electrical but that is not hard to solve on a old truck not to much electric to mess with. She does break down much more often than a newer truck but most repairs do not take but a few minutes. I will suggest that you always keep some tools in the truck just in case she does break down . I would also suggest that you hive the truck a very thorough inspection before you start driving it on a daily basis. Check your Brakes, repack your wheel bearings (replace if needed), Change all fluids (coolant, engine oil, transmission fluid, Rear end Oil) Just so that you know they are all full. EDIT My 68 Ford is the lowest maintennace vehicle I own. It always starts. She only left me straded once and that was because it busted a rag joint a $5.00 fix that took 5 minutes to fix. Does not leak a drop of anything. And is fun to drive and work on. As for the cost a lot of money to fix. old vehicle parts are much much much cheaper to buy and easier to replace. Changed my fuel pump on my truck it cost me $12.00 and took 5 minutes to install. change one on a newer car and it will cost you $200.00 or more and take an entire afternoon to change if you can even change it your self. Some people like working on old cars and trucks. For the people that do not and wish to drive around in some soul-less car I really do not expect you to understand.why someone would want to do so. But do not say that it is a bad idea just because you would not do it

Chevy Tahoe Gives Me a Warning: Check Engine Oil?
Chevy Tahoe gives me a warning: Check Engine Oil?are you sure it does not say "change engine oil"? If so, the dealer did not reset the OLM (oil life monitor). You can do this yourself, by turning the key to "on" but do not start it, press the gas to the floor 5 times, start the vehicle, then shut it off. There are technical papers on this OLM system, and it's actually the most accurate and advanced version available by any manufacturer, but it is notorious for not always immediately re-setting, so if it does not reset after you do this, give it a few more engine starts and it will. I am not aware that this system has a "check engine oil" function, unless it is referring to low oil pressure, but I do not think it has the ability to tell you if your oil level is low, at least it did not on the 2002 models. If yours is newer, it may. If it does indeed say "check" and not "change", then there is something wrong with the system itself - loose wire to the sensor, bad sensor, something of that nature— — — — — —Vw beetle 1973 1200cc oil pressure indicator lights up when driving,why?low oil pressure. better get it checked out.— — — — — —I have a 1998 freightliner and my low oil pressure light continues to come on.?What engine and what type of freightliner? IE: century,fld,classic, etc Oil in the coolant is not good, but may not be related to the low oil light. First place to look for oil in the coolant is the oil cooler. If it's ok, then it's time to go to the head gasket. If it's not either of those, then it's most likely a cracked head or block. Oil in the coolant will cause the cooling system to get clogged up and make the engine over heat. If you have a detroit, what is the oil guage reading when the low oil light comes on? If the guage is ok, then it is probably a sensor or loose wire, or pressure switch. The sensor is on the left side of the block toward the back. There is a pressure switch on the air manifold, which on a century is behind the carpet at your right knee when seated in the driver's seat. A loose wire there is a common problem. On an fld or classic the air manifold is under the dash panel behind the air switches (tandem lock, suspension dump, etc) Not really common problem on flds or classics. Is it just a low oil light or is it a low oil high water light. If it's a low oil high water light, it could be the water sensor, because of the oil in the coolant.— — — — — —Low oil pressure after engine reaches running temperature.Change the sensor or use a mechanical pressure gauge to verify the actual oil pressure.— — — — — —low oil pressure in 1993 gmc 1500?What weight oil are you using? while you are using too skinny oil, it wo not save your oil tension severe and could drop straight away, and in the adventure that your truck runs warm verify your thermostat is not sticking.
