How Often to Change 1984 GMC K2500 Suburban Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1984 GMC K2500 Suburban? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Your 1984 K2500 Suburban’s oil should be changed according to GMC’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of GMC-recommended oil change intervals, your K2500 Suburban may need an oil change 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than GMC recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your GMC K2500 Suburban. 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.

1984 GMC K2500 Suburban Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my GMC K2500 Suburban motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your GMC K2500 Suburban engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC K2500 Suburban oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
