Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Chevrolet C2500

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet C2500? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Chevrolet C2500 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet C2500 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
