2001 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Suburban 1500 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Suburban 1500’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Chevrolet Suburban 1500 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
