2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet Avalanche 2500? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
