Importance of Oil Changes

You expect your vehicle to run smoothly, old or low engine oil can greatly impact your vehicle’s ability to lubricate the engine. This can cause your engine to overheat and lead to more serious repair needs. To help ensure your vehicle’s performance, you need to make sure you are allowing your engine oil to perform in peak condition. And when it’s time for an oil change, our certified service experts are here to ensure your vehicles performance, longevity, value, and safety. We’ll inspect your vehicle’s oil line, flush out the old oil, and replace your oil and oil filter with engine oil that’s best suited to your lifestyle and model. Benefits of routine oil changes include:

  • Better engine performance
  • Better gas mileage
  • Less harmful emissions
  • Extended engine life

​​Choosing The Right Oil

Choosing the proper grade of oil is crucial to your vehicle’s performance. From conventional to full synthetic, your Certified Service expert will offer a range of oil types, including ACDelco Gold Conventional Oil, ACDelco dexos1™ Full Synthetic, and Mobil 1™ Full Synthetic.
These oils contain a variety of characteristics that can affect your vehicle’s performance, offer varying levels of engine protection, and maximize the time between oil changes.

ACDelco Gold Conventional Oil:

  • Offers quality engine wear and corrosion protection
  • Contains special additives that help your engine run smoothly

ACDelco dexos1 Full Synthetic Oil:

  • High resistance to oxidation, which helps keep the oil from breaking down
  • Excellent low-temperature flow and pumpability during cold startups
  • Excellent protection to help prevent formation of sludge and other harmful deposits

Mobil 1 Full Synthetic Oil:

  • Advanced anti-wear technology for outstanding protection of critical engine parts
  • Exceptional high-temperature stability helps resist oxidative thickening
  • Proven to provide outstanding cold starting, lubrication, and protection from wear at low temperatures

Oil Life System

Many of today’s vehicles are equipped with an Oil Life Monitoring System (OLMS). This system interprets your vehicle’s speed and engine temperature and continuously monitors operating conditions, which helps determine when it’s time for an oil change.

The OLMS monitors several conditions, including engine revolutions, engine temperature, and miles driven to let you know precisely when to come in for an oil change. As soon as you notice your vehicle’s OLS light illuminate, it’s time for service.


Checking Your Oil Level

Even with an OLS, it’s important to keep track of your oil level. Always consult your Owner’s Manual for the proper procedure to check your oil level. You’ll get a more accurate dipstick reading by:

  1. Use warm oil, too hot is dangerous & too cold is inaccurate
  2. Park on level ground
  3. Review Owner Manual for proper procedure & oil location
  4. Once dipstick is found, remove & wipe down
  5. Reinsert to get an accurate reading

Oil Change Warning Signs

When the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message displays, service is required for your vehicle as soon as possible. The engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and the OLMS must be reset. The Certified Service experts at your dealer will do this. If your vehicle is not equipped with an OLMS, consult your Service and Maintenance Schedule contained within your vehicle Owner’s Manual for proper change intervals. Common warning signs that it is time for an oil change include:

  • Your engine is overheating
  • You see oil leaking
  • You hear odd engine noises
