  • We never had the "CHECK ENGINE OIL SOON" come on but monitored the engine life based on the car's computer system and consistently changed the oil and filter regularly. We are in the process of getting the specifications of the oil and filter. This vehicle has a computer system that indicates when to change the oil and filter based on revolutions and engine temperature not mileage.

    The big question is whether the oil used was specifically noted as a GM dexos approved product or if it was just a conventional 5W30. The filter part numbers will be necessary to prove if they were an equivalent or not.

    That is one of the most important questions.

    @buyamerican8 Did you come up with the details of the services yet? What were the specifics of the engine failure?
    This might come down to one of those hard lessons to learn but the details could save someone else from a similar fate.
