How Often to Change 1995 GMC Safari Oil

Need more info about 1995 GMC Safari oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 1995 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. Your Safari may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of 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 long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your GMC Safari. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1995 GMC Safari Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my GMC Safari engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to GMC Safari engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my GMC Safari oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 Safari 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
