Not sure how or where to get your GMC Savana 1500’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2006 Savana 1500’s oil should be changed according to GMC’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Savana 1500 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than GMC recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your GMC Savana 1500. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My GMC Savana 1500 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2006 GMC Savana 1500 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. GMC has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2006 GMC Savana 1500 vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Savana 1500’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Savana 1500 by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2006 GMC Savana 1500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my GMC Savana 1500? Engine oil lubricates 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 it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC Savana 1500 oil at home? 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
