It's time for my 1st oil change and I don't want to drive the 90 miles to my Hummer dealer for basic service, but I want to be sure that my Hummer is serviced properly. Is there any tech info available on where all the lube fittings are located? Is the oil filter a special type for the Hummer? Any other info that I need to know would be very helpful!

My dealer says you have to remove the front skid plate to get to all the lub points.

Thanks for the diagram, PhilD! Do you know what type of oil filter is needed?

PhilD,
Where did you get the service manual?
Is it hard copy or CD-ROM format?
It's "Out of stock" for months at Helminc.com

Many thanks PhilD!
Just bought a set of GM Service Manuals at Ebay at Ebay frm "qualityandprice" fo $ 39.50.
I knew I'd seen the local GM dealer use it, when looking up the part## of both tail gate struts, which become weak.

Be careful w/ taking your rig for an oil change. Due to the location of the filter and the skid plate I just returned from a Chev Dealer to find the dealer had not tightened my filter w/ oil pouring out all under my drivetrain. Took it to a Hummer dealer only to find they were having the same problem.

Here are some pics of display at Houston Auto Show of H2 with body removed. You can see some of the lube points behind the skid plate.
All view are from top side of frame.

I changed the oil myself at 3000 miles. Due to the filter location, you can't get a good hand grip on it to fully tighten it. I purchased one of those filter cap wrenches (socket) that you insert a socket driver into. The cap fits on the end of the filter and you tighten it with a socket driver, gently of course. Works great - Walmart price approx. $3.


Hummie2 - thanks for posting all the photos.

Lube points. Ok, so I am completely incompetent when it comes to this kind of stuff. I did just finish the oil change, which may not seem like much...but hey, it's a start. What exactly do I need in order to lube these areas under the truck, and it's 18 points right? And do you just pump oil into it until it's completely full or what?

I now have my own pneumatic grease gun and got under my rig & checked. They got the obvious ones, but not the secret ones. The Idler Arm zerk with the bulleting to replace with a 90 degree fitting was interesting. I removed and replaced it. The fitting I took out was a FALSE fitting i.e. completely closed! Don't understand that at all. Any ideas why GM would do that? And oh, your picture without all the other components installed makes it look easy to get to that zerk. It ain't!
