2001 GMC Savana 1500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my GMC Savana 1500 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Savana 1500’s 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 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Savana 1500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
