How do I do an oil change for 2006 GMC Canyon?

Lift your GMC Canyon using a jack and set the truck on jack stands. If you don't have jack stands then use a set of wheel ramps. Make sure you brace the front tires so the truck doesn't roll. (safety first) Pop the hood and take off the oil filler cap and remove the dipstick. Gather an oil drip pan, cleaning cloths, new oil filter, and adjustable crescent wrench and then slide under the truck. Locate the oil drain plug and filter. Loosen and then remove the oil plug and pull it out quickly. Let the used oil drain for 10 to 15 minutes into the drip pan. Take off the filter using an oil filter wrench. Check the gasket and threads for damage and dump the extra oil into the drip pan. Clean off any excess oil and replace with new oil filter. Put the oil drain plug back in (tighten it) and slide out from underneath your truck. Add new oil (approx 5 quarts) inside the oil filler hole and replace the dipstick and then tighten the oil cap. Lower your truck and start the engine for a minute so that oil pressure builds up. After you are done with the oil change, turn the ignition key to "run" and then hit the gas pedal three times to reset the oil change light.

Rear Main Oil Seal leak 2008 GMC Canyon

I think this is for an oil level sensor. Should be easy to change , or a shop can do it for a nominal charge. The dealerships will want more.

I was changing my spark plugs on my 2006 GMC Canyon. Now I have a dead miss. Changed all my spark plugs and my coils. What is going on here?

If you had this problem before you changed the plugs and coils then you have a bad injector or injector connection.

Hi, I'm trying to change the rotors on a 2006 GMC Canyon and we can't seem to get the piece in front of the rotor off. Is there a schematic for them?

Is the piece you are referring to the piece that holds the brake pads? If so there should be two larger head bolts behind that piece that holds it on to the front axle.
