1994 GMC K2500 Suburban Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my GMC K2500 Suburban engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to GMC K2500 Suburban engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change GMC K2500 Suburban oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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? 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 worn cylinder walls.
