Your 1991 Safari’s oil should be changed according to GMC’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your GMC Safari. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1991 GMC Safari

  • What can low oil do to my GMC Safari engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your GMC Safari engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC Safari oil at home? 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Safari 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.
