How Often to Get 2016 GMC Canyon Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 GMC Canyon? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 changing your 2016 Canyon’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of GMC-recommended oil change intervals, your Canyon may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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 long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your GMC Canyon. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My GMC Canyon Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2016 GMC Canyon motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. GMC has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2016 GMC Canyon vehicles.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and odometer.

2016 GMC Canyon Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my GMC Canyon engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to GMC Canyon engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my GMC exhaust smoke gray 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
