1998 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban Oil Change Questions

  • 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 reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Chevrolet C2500 Suburban engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet C2500 Suburban oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet C2500 Suburban exhaust smoke grayish 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
