Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet C2500 Suburban engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet C2500 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet C2500 Suburban spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
