When to Change 2000 GMC K2500 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your GMC K2500’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.

GMC recommends having your 2000 GMC K2500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your K2500 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your GMC K2500. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2000 GMC K2500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my GMC K2500 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your K2500’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my GMC oil on my own? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my GMC K2500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
