GMC recommends changing your 1989 C2500’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

1989 GMC C2500 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC C2500? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your C2500’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? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my GMC C2500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
