Oil Change Q&A for Your 2005 GMC Savana 1500

  • Should I check my GMC Savana 1500 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to GMC Savana 1500 engine failure. 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 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 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
