GMC recommends having your 1998 GMC C2500 Suburban’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your GMC C2500 Suburban.

1998 GMC C2500 Suburban Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my GMC C2500 Suburban engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your C2500 Suburban’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
