1991 GMC R1500 Suburban Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my GMC R1500 Suburban motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to GMC R1500 Suburban engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC R1500 Suburban oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 R1500 Suburban exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
