1984 GMC S15 Jimmy Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my GMC S15 Jimmy engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to GMC S15 Jimmy engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change GMC S15 Jimmy 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my GMC S15 Jimmy exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional 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.
