When to Change 2013 GMC Savana 1500 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your GMC Savana 1500’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.”

GMC recommends having your 2013 GMC Savana 1500’s motor oil changed at regular 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2013 GMC Savana 1500?

2013 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 your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Savana 1500’s 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 Savana 1500 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Savana 1500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
