GMC recommends having your 2008 GMC Savana 1500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of GMC-recommended oil change intervals, your Savana 1500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than GMC recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 GMC Savana 1500

  • Should I check my GMC Savana 1500 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, 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.
  • 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 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 also with your vehicle 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
