IF YOU FIND THIS INFO USEFUL PLEASE RATE ME AS A FIXYA! THANKS

Oil Change Reset
A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
“OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage perform the following procedure:
1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
OIL LIFE AT XXX%.”
2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
40% and 30%.

Hello Seth.
If the temperature you are running until your next oil change is due will be below 50F average they recommend 5w30.
Otherwise 10w 30 is the choice.

Why do 2015 Toyota 4 runners have to use sinthetic oil opposed to the 2013 models


synthetic oils maintain a fairly constant viscosity through out the operation heat range , where as mineral oils change viscosity as the engine gets hotter ( synthetic oils 20 w and minerals 15w-40 )
It could be a manufacturer requirement to maintain warranty but it is generally accepted that mineral oils and synthetic oils have small differences in the life of an engine
Talk with an oil manufacturer such as castrol, shell etc and with your service dealer to get a better understanding of the requirement

What oil do I use on a 08 buick lucerne cxl


OIL TYPE

1.GM6094M Your vehicle's engine requires oil meeting GM Standard GM6094M.

2.SAE 5W-30 is best for your vehicle. These numbers on an oil container show its viscosity, or thickness. Do not use other viscosity oils such as SAE 20W-50. Oils meeting these requirements should also have the starburst symbol on the container. This symbol indicates that the oil has been certified by the American Petroleum Institute (API). You should look for this information on the oil container, and use only those oils that are identified as meeting GM Standard GM6094M and have the starburst symbol on the front of the oil container.

NOTICE: Use only engine oil identified as meeting GM Standard GM6094M and showing the American Petroleum Institute Certified For Gasoline Engines starburst symbol. Failure to use the recommended oil can result in engine damage not covered by your warranty.

GM Goodwrench oil meets all the requirements for your vehicle.

If you are in an area of extreme cold, where the temperature falls below -20°F (-29°C), it is recommended that you use either an SAE 5W-30 synthetic oil or an SAE 0W-30 oil. Both will provide easier cold starting and better protection for your engine at extremely low temperatures.

ENGINE OIL ADDITIVES
Do not add anything to your oil. The recommended oils with the starburst symbol that meet GM Standard GM6094M are all you will need for good performance and engine protection.

I have a 1975 chevy van g20 and I want to know the best type and weight of engine oil I should use in it?


In 1975 GM called for 10W30 oil in their engines. Yours would have a lot of miles on it by now so stepping up to 10W40 would likely be a better idea. If you can't find that 15W40 would be okay as well. If your engine isn't burning any serious amount of oil, a change to synthetic might be worthwhile to extend engine life. Stick to name brands at this stage of the game. No-name oils tend to barely meet standards, whereas namebrands tend to exceed them and meet manufacturer's requirements. Hope this helps.

Which oil is recommended for a 04 Dodge 1500 4x4


Brand names aside, both lubricants bear the same designations. 5w being how the temperature when cold affects the pour point of the lube, second # being how the lube protects components (film strength) when at operating temp. If you follow recommended oil change intervals, either will perform fairly well, and better than conventional oil. I have done extensive research on lubricants and their properties as related to professional drag race engines which see far higher pressures, temps and general "abuse" when compared to the grocery getter. The major difference between lubricants from varying manufacturers is the additive and stabilizing chemical packages they add to the actual lubricant and the quality of the "base" oil which is essentially "cloned" to produce the synthetic. This package determines the lifespan of the product, based upon burn off rate, chemical changes from shear etc. Since many auto manufacturers have increased oil change intervals, if followed, any synthetic on the market today is pretty much OK to use. Do your own research if you want to exceed manufacturers requirements. One company, Amsoil, offers some really good lubricants that exceed every requirement in every application. There are other companies that also offer some good options. The final decision is up to you, but in average driving situations, as a general rule, just about any lube that meets manufacturers posted specifications should be OK>
