GMC recommends changing your 2010 Canyon’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

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.

2010 GMC Canyon Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my GMC Canyon motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to GMC Canyon engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC Canyon oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Canyon spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
