1999 GMC Savana 1500 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my GMC Savana 1500 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Savana 1500’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change GMC Savana 1500 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Savana 1500 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
