1989 GMC G2500 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my GMC G2500 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your G2500’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change GMC G2500 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 G2500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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.
