GMC recommends changing your 1999 Savana 2500’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Savana 2500 in the above table. Outside of GMC-recommended oil change intervals, your Savana 2500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by GMC if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your GMC Savana 2500. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 GMC Savana 2500

  • Should I check my GMC Savana 2500 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Savana 2500’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my GMC Savana 2500 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my GMC Savana 2500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
