Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 GMC C2500 Suburban

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC C2500 Suburban? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to GMC C2500 Suburban engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change GMC C2500 Suburban oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 C2500 Suburban exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
