Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Chevrolet K2500

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chevrolet K2500? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your K2500’s 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 K2500 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 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 K2500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
