1992 GMC C1500 Suburban Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my GMC C1500 Suburban engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to GMC C1500 Suburban engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my GMC oil on my own? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my GMC C1500 Suburban exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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.
