After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

GMC recommends changing your 1995 K1500’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of GMC-recommended oil change intervals, your K1500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your GMC K1500. 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.

1995 GMC K1500 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my GMC K1500 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your GMC K1500 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC K1500 oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my GMC K1500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
