2002 GMC Envoy Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my GMC Envoy motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your GMC Envoy 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 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my GMC exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
