1995 GMC K1500 Suburban Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC K1500 Suburban? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 K1500 Suburban spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
