1993 GMC G2500 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my GMC G2500 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to GMC G2500 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 G2500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
