Chevy recommends changing the oil in your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 every 12,000 kilometers (7,500 miles). The automaker also recommends changing the oil at least once per year, even if you aren’t hitting that 12,000 kilometer mark within a one year period. The 2017 Silverado 1500 will flash a “CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON” message if you are within 1,000 kilometers of requiring an oil change to help you stay on top of the truck’s maintenance schedule.
