1999 GMC C2500 Suburban Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC C2500 Suburban? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, 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 C2500 Suburban oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
