How Often to Change 1995 GMC Jimmy Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1995 GMC Jimmy? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1995 Jimmy’s oil should be changed according to GMC’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Jimmy may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by GMC if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your GMC Jimmy. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

GMC has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1995 Jimmy. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Jimmy’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Jimmy by taking into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

1995 GMC Jimmy Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my GMC Jimmy motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Jimmy’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 Jimmy oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
