1994 GMC C2500 Suburban Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my GMC C2500 Suburban 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 GMC C2500 Suburban engine to fail. 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my GMC C2500 Suburban spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
