1991 GMC S15 Jimmy Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC S15 Jimmy? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your GMC S15 Jimmy 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
