2002 GMC Savana 1500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC Savana 1500? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your GMC Savana 1500 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change GMC Savana 1500 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
