If you keep the oil changed and keep the engine tuned up, no problems. Have the tranny fluid and filter changed also. I've got 245,000 + on my '98 w/ this philosophy.

What kind of life expectancy can one expect to get on new gas engines these days[in kilometers]if properly maintained.Have just purchased an 09 Sierra pickup with the 4.8 liter.

Don't go over 5000 miles. The oil life monitor will say you have 50 % (Approx.) but if you use it to 100% you will be way over due for an oil change.

The system uses rpm and coolant temperature to calculate the oil life, so if you don't drive very far the system will not calculate it correctly.
