GMC recommends changing your 1993 K2500’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

1993 GMC K2500 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my GMC K2500 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to GMC K2500 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC K2500 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 exhaust smoke grayish 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 worn cylinder walls.
