Question about 2008 Saturn Outlook

1 Answer

My 2008 outlook sucked the internal contents of my oil filter into the motor. Who would be responsible for this? GM says it is not their problem even though it has 50,000 miles left on the warranty.

It was due to a defective filter.. if you had your oil changed at the dealership and a factory brand filter installed it would be a warranty issue, otherwise unfortunately not

How often do you change the oil on the 2008 aura saturn


I have a 2008 Saturn Aura. Your car should have an oil life system. Depending on how you drive it will turn on a message to tell you to change oil. After you change oil and filter make sure you reset the oil life system. Get in car Turn key on press accelerator all the way to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. Use 5W30 oil. I use Mobil 1 Extended and change my oil every 6,000 miles. (I'm a retired Cadillac Technician)

The overwhelming response on GM Envoy forums is Mobil 1 Synthetic motor oil.

The recommend includes using Mobil 1 0W-40 all year. It will give you outstanding protection at low ambient temperatures as well as at high operating temperatures.

I need the oil viscosity recommendation for a 2008 Saturn Outlook V6... I think it's 5W30?


2008 Saturn Truck Outlook AWD V6-3.6L

Vehicle: Fluid Type Specifications
Engine Oil
ENGINE OIL TYPE
Look for two things:
1. GM6094M Your vehicle's engine requires oil meeting GM Standard GM6094M.
2. SAE 5W-30 as shown in the viscosity chart, 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.
