1992 GMC K2500 Suburban Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my GMC K2500 Suburban engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to GMC K2500 Suburban engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC K2500 Suburban 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
