2017 GMC Acadia Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC Acadia? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your GMC Acadia engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 GMC exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
