How Often to Change 2009 GMC Canyon Oil

Not sure how or where to get your GMC Canyon’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

GMC recommends having your 2009 GMC Canyon’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Canyon may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than GMC recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your GMC Canyon. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My GMC Canyon?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2009 GMC Canyon motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. GMC has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2009 GMC Canyon vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Canyon’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Canyon by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

2009 GMC Canyon Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my GMC Canyon motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your GMC Canyon engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change GMC Canyon oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Canyon exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
