GM Oil Life Monitor

*Disclaimer – I have a clue about cars.  This story begins when my friend saw me rip the oil sticker off my windshield as soon as I got back in the car after an oil change, he was shocked!  I told him that I have a GM car and it has super powers lets me know when to change my oil.  After going back and forth with the arguement, it concluded with me shutting it down by saying “My daddy says it’s true and he’s kept a car running for over 30 years!” 😛

 

But, I really wasn’t all that sure.  After searching, I first came across GM’s Technical Tip and Cadillac Maintenance info.  Then, perused one of my fav sites and found the video above, and one with a really attractive mechanic!  And for all those “hip” readers of the 21st century, there are articles about trusting the system, and if you really have to change oil every 3,000 miles.  They have all come to the conclusion that the Oil Monitoring System really does work!  It takes into account your driving conditions, the current engine performance, and better grades of oil.  It is also great for helping the environment with oil disposal.  In conclusion, I WIN! I’ll continue with changing my oil around 10% for now.
