1997 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet C2500 Suburban? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet C2500 Suburban engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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. 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 also with your vehicle 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
