Oil Change Q&A for Your 1984 GMC K2500

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC K2500? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to GMC K2500 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change GMC K2500 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my GMC K2500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
