2004 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, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to GMC Savana 1500 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Savana 1500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 damaged cylinder walls.

  • What does it mean if my GMC Savana 1500 oil light comes on? Your GMC Savana 1500 oil change reminder light may come on if you're overdue for an oil change.

  • Should the oil filter be replaced when getting an oil change for my GMC Savana 1500? It's recommended that you replace your GMC Savana 1500 oil filter with every oil change. Otherwise, you send fresh, clean motor oil through a dirty filter. That's like putting on muddy socks after a shower.
