When to Change 2010 GMC Savana 1500 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 GMC Savana 1500? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2010 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. No matter the mileage, your Savana 1500 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by GMC if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your GMC Savana 1500. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My GMC Savana 1500?

GMC has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2010 Savana 1500. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, 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, inspect the rest of your car’s 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 GMC Savana 1500

  • 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, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your GMC Savana 1500 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 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 exhaust smoke grayish 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
