1994 GMC K1500 Suburban Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my GMC K1500 Suburban motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to GMC K1500 Suburban engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC K1500 Suburban 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my GMC exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
