2005 GMC Envoy Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC Envoy? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to GMC Envoy engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
