GMC recommends having your 2006 GMC Envoy XL’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Envoy XL in the above table. Outside of GMC-recommended oil change intervals, your Envoy XL may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your GMC Envoy XL. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 GMC Envoy XL

  • What can low oil do to my GMC Envoy XL engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your GMC Envoy XL engine to fail. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
