At what percentage on the oil lif indicator should the oil be changed

Asked by Jan 16, 2014 at 01:15 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

70,845

The system is designed to measure engine revolutions and average coolant temperatures. If you go by the system then the oil needs changing at 0% life left and the change engine oil message will come on. Personally I change my oil every 3 months or 3,000 miles. Whichever comes first. I reset the system weather the message comes on or not. HTH. -Jim
