1995 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Chevrolet C1500 Suburban motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet C1500 Suburban oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet C1500 Suburban spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
