Pontiac G6 Care & Maintenance
#1 My car mfg 10/06 date does not contain any protective covering, black cap, over the oil filter as I had read in a previous post (#2020 -1)or is this only on the 4 cycl engines, if so why?
#2 After completing the first oil change and resetting the Oil Life expectancy display, it has been not even a week 180 miles and the Oil life display is reading 96%. It had dropped to 98% after the first 60 miles. The round trip to work is just over 60 miles, with 80% highway miles. I've check the oil level and the level is ok, when I changed it took 4.5 qrts of 5w30 as recommended. When I purchased the vehicle the dealer stated to change the oil when the display indicates anywhere from 5K - 8K. I havent done the quick math yet, but Im guessing that wont add up. Does this seem reasonable, or others seen this? I seem to recall at the time I changed the oil the display was maybe 70% at 1100 miles.
I know this is still a new engine but just wondering...
#3 This is definately a nice upgrade vehicle from a 99 Stratus 4 cycl. Leather int and Panoramic roof is nice, just waiting for summer to use. I have the dark gray and was thinking of a few small upgrades, tinting the windows, other ideas?
