1996 GMC Savana 2500 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my GMC Savana 2500 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Savana 2500’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 2500 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 Savana 2500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
