How Often to Change 1993 GMC C2500 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your GMC C2500’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

GMC recommends changing your 1993 C2500’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of GMC-recommended oil change intervals, your C2500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by GMC if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your GMC C2500. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 GMC C2500

  • Should I check my GMC C2500 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to GMC C2500 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC oil on my own? 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. 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
