Have you used synthetic since it was new? if it has higher mileage i would use a quality one, mobile 1 5w30 is great but pricey, i have an 03 tahoe with 237,000 and use the castrol gtx high mileage and i am very happy with it, i have used it since the vehicle had 158,000 miles, and the oil is always in good shape when changed, i go 6,000 mile intervals as well, always on the highway

SOURCE: My Chevy 2002 Tahoe is leaking oil. They told me

this truck is equipped with an aluminum oil pan you could have 1 or several things going on... a stripped drain plug which is causing it to leak or it may be a leaking front seal or a rear main seal. If it is a front seal it is not to labor intensive. But if it is a rear main seal leaking it will require the transmission to be removed since the seal is a 1 piece rear main

SOURCE: How do I replace the oil dipstick tube?

The dipstick can be pulled out of the block with a pair of vicegrips and the new one driven down into the block. Before trying to pull the dipstick tube out make sure it is not held onto the block with a small bolt.

Why does oil turn pinkish on chevy venture 2002


Is it synthetic blend? I've never heard of regular oil ever turning pink, not even when contaminated with other fluids. Have it looked at by someone. If it's synthetic, maybe it's normal?

I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe. for the past 6 months


without hearing exact noise it is hard to diagnose. these vehicles had a normal cold start knocking noise due to the low friction rings used allowed piston some extra movement. when carbon builds up on pistons it gets worse will go away after about a minute running. it does not affect life of engine or performance. i think this may be noise you hear. or possible it is a lifter leaking down and taking a while to pump up

What type of oil is required for a 2002 Chevy Tahoe?


For the engine SAE 5W-30 motor is recomended. It should have an API service rating of SJ or SM.Most older oils are not sold any more so you should be safe buying from any retailers. Be wary of Garage sales, car swaps and flea markets. I have seen some pretty old oil on sale there.

Diesel oil


Yes you can use conventional oil, but it will mean more frequent oil changes at least every 3,000 miles, also engine wear is much less with synthetic oil, almost zero in fact, but if you change cars before 100,000 miles that is not an issue. I have a car, a Chevy Corvette that uses synthetic oil, I watch ads for sales and rebates, got 3 cases (18 quarts) for $18.00 US after rebates, these are major brands like Mobil 1
