1994 GMC G3500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my GMC G3500 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to GMC G3500 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my GMC G3500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
