2002 GMC Envoy XL Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC Envoy XL? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to GMC Envoy XL engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my GMC Envoy XL oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Envoy XL 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
