Question about Cars & Trucks
We do not have a tool that especially designed to read and write engine mapping with Peugeot and Citroen cars. But we have two device that can do this. They are KTAG ECU programming tool and KESS V2 ECU tuning kit.
KTAG K-TAG is designed to meet our customers need and is known as inexpensive but reliable. It is compatiable with dozens of auto protocols, including SKODA BOSCH EDC16, CBMW BOSCH EDC16, PEUGEOT BOSCH EDC16 and CITROEN BOSCH EDC16C.
Different from KTAG, KESS V2 is a professional oriented tool. It supports all major brands and protocols you can find, including that for Peugeot and Citroen. As a professional tool, it supports more functions and languages than KTAG, and is of course more expensive than KTAG.
You can try one of them according to your need.

SOURCE: Recommended Engine Oil
You can keep using that oil with no problems. Most people don't really understand what the numbers on the bottle actually mean. There is a really long definition but here is the short version: The first number represents the pour point of the oil at freezing (@32 degrees F).
The second number represents the protection offered, compared to a "straight weight" oil eg: 30, 40, 50, at 212F degrees. Therefore, at freezing, your oil will pour (or flow) like a 20 weight oil, and give wear protection of a 50 weight oil at 212 degrees.
The quality of any oil is based upon the chemical makeup of the base oil, some have a high parafin content and are prone fo sludge formation, while better ones do not and tend to last longer. The ability to "change weights" with temperature is controlled by an additive "package" which is part of the product formula, as are other features such as anti foaming and the ability to keep particles in suspension.
If you stay with better oils such as Castrol, Quaker State, Valvoline etc. You will have no problems. (especially because in your area you don't go from sub zero to 100's).
Don't forget to add a quality filter to your oil changes. This is as important as your oil!!!
Good luck with your car!!!

Check with chevy a dealership service (phone call) , there are 2 different types if your car is an automatic. If your car is a standard , it could be gear lube , or even Automatic trans fluid.

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
