1994 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet C1500 Suburban? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet C1500 Suburban engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet C1500 Suburban oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
