[VIDEO] 2020 Corvette Stingray's Oil Change Procedure is Different than Previous Corvette Generations


See, you can learn something from watching YouTubers talk about their Morgan Crosbie who is a Chevy sales rep for Finch Chevy in London, Ontario.

His personal 2020 Corvette Stingray Z51 coupe has been the subject of several videos including the one showing how the engine compartment gets soaked during a car wash. Morgan is back with a new video to kick off the week that shows what happens behind the scenes as the new mid-engine Corvette goes in for a GM certified oil change.

Once Morgan’s car is on the lift, the oil plug is removed and the car is left to sit for about 20 minutes to completely drain all the oil from the reservoir. Phil is the certified Corvette tech at the dealership and he reviews the used oil and filter for any signs of contaminates or metal shavings. Once the car is completely drained, a new filter is added, the drain plug is returned, and the car is brought back down to the ground where it will receive 7+ liters of Mobil 1’s 0w40 ESP Dexos2 motor oil.

After the oil is added, the C8 Corvette must be started to let the oil circulate before it can be checked. Phil explains that the car has been running for about 5 minutes when he pulls the dipstick to check the oil level and he sees that it needs a bit more to top it off. As they let the oil completely drain before the refill, Phil says the car took about 7.5 liters to get it exactly where it needs to be.

  1. A site for Corvettes and nothing but humor and misinformation in the comments. Can’t figure out why a good percentage of people refuse to take the information seriously. Thus far, there are those who claim the oil is to be changed just after 500 miles on the original odometer; and those who say it should be done at the first regular service. Can someone from the Company provide the answer?

  2. Most importantly, did the C8 tech place the car on the lift properly? With a 60/40 weight bias towards the rear C8’s have been known to dangerously tilt and almost fall off if the manual’s jacking pad points are followed!

  3. If u have that kind of money u should use money to learn about the Vett before u buy it..

  4. Looking into the center threaded hole in the oil filter won”t show metal filings. The filings if any
    are on the other side of the filter element.
    You have to cut open the filter and spread out the element to inspect for metal. A good idea
    to inspect the original filter.

  5. I’m the only person who has ever changed the oil on my C3.
    I’ve always let it drip for 15 or 20 minutes.
    Or one beer.
    Little did I know….

  6. THIS ISNOT AN ADVER FIND A SHOP LIKE LIKIS SERVICE PENSACOLA FL THEL-L SHOW THINGS LIKE OIL FILT CUT HAVE TO ASK IF BEER IS EXTRA CHARGE -HAS RADIO & VIDEO SHOW SATURDAYS

  7. Wow,such complexity on the C8! With all the aero panels you can’t check for leaks or corrosion either. My C7 oil change is sooo much easier!

  8. 7.5 liters? Give me a break. What does the owners manual say? How about 8 quarts? All you’re going to do is confuse people since (most all) oil comes in quart containers.
