Not sure how or where to get your GMC K2500 Suburban’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.
Your 1997 K2500 Suburban’s oil should be changed according to GMC’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your K2500 Suburban may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by GMC if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your GMC K2500 Suburban. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your GMC K2500 Suburban. GMC has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1997 GMC K2500 Suburban vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your K2500 Suburban's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your K2500 Suburban by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.
