OIL CHANGE FACTS:
OIL CHANGE WARNING SIGNS:
Not paying attention to your oil life can be potentially dangerous, resulting in costly consequences. Below, you will find a number of indicators that will help you prevent damage to your engine.
CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON MESSAGE
When the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message displays, service is required for your vehicle as soon as possible. In some cases, the Oil Life Monitoring System might not indicate the need for vehicle service for up to a year. The engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and the Oil Life Monitoring System must be reset.
If your vehicle is not equipped with an Oil Life Monitoring System, consult your Service and Maintenance Schedule located in your vehicle Owner's Manual.
OIL PRESSURE LOW/STOP ENGINE
Low engine oil pressure can cause extreme and costly damage to your engine. If this message displays, safely bring your vehicle to a stop and do not attempt to restart until the cause of the drop is diagnosed and corrected. Check the oil level immediately. DO NOT operate the engine with the oil pressure warning light on or an ENGINE OIL LOW ADD OIL message displayed.
One of the most immediate signs of an issue with your oil is noticeable leaks. If you detect a leak, book a service appointment as soon as possible. Catching a problem before becomes a larger issue can help save you time and money.
ENGINE OIL LIFE MONITORING SYSTEM:
GM vehicles are equipped with an engine Oil Life Monitoring System. This system interprets your vehicle’s speed, engine temperature, personal driving habits, and continuously monitors operating conditions — which helps determine when it’s the appropriate time for an oil change.
The Oil Life Monitoring System (OLS) makes it easy to determine how often to change your oil. It tells you precisely when it's time based not only on your driving patterns and mileage, but also things like the climate of your area. This means that changing your oil every 5,000 kilometres may no longer be necessary. Your Certified Service experts are trained to understand how your vehicle uses its oil and can help keep your vehicle on the appropriate maintenance schedule.
To find out more about the OLS, consult your Owner’s Manual.
SELECTING THE RIGHT OIL FOR YOUR VEHICLE:
Modern engines have specific requirements for their engine oil and dexos®† Gen 2 Full Synthetic Oil not only is affordable and specifically engineered for GM vehicles, it’s backwards compatible with previous model years for your Chevrolet, GMC, Buick or Cadillac.
You can also check your Owner’s Manual for the correct grade.
