To ensure proper engine performance and long life, careful attention must be paid to engine oil. Following these simple, but important steps will help protect your investment:
- Use engine oil approved to the proper specification and of the proper viscosity grade. See “Selecting the Right Engine Oil” in your owner’s manual.
- At least once a month, check the engine oil level and maintain the proper oil level. See “Checking Engine Oil” and “When to Add Engine Oil” in your owner’s manual
- Most GM vehicles are equipped with “Engine Oil Life Monitoring System” (OLM) that takes your driving habits, outside temperatures, engine temperatures to know when you need to change your oil and filter.

About GM dexos®
GM has found that using substandard oil can affect engine performance and, in the worst-case scenario, may damage or harm the engine. Only licensed dexos® products have been certified by GM to meet the dexos® specification. Unlicensed products have not gone through GM's rigorous testing process, are not monitored for quality, and are not approved or recommended for use in GM vehicles. Unlicensed product quality and suitability for GM vehicles cannot be guaranteed and, therefore, use of unlicensed products may result in lower levels of performance and could cause engine damage that may not be covered under warranty.
Eastside Chevrolet uses only licensed GM Dexos products for all oil changes along with genuine GM oil filters.
Eastside Chevrolet Buick GMC is located in Markham, Ontario and also serves Richmond Hill, North York, Vaughan, Newmarket, Scarborough, Toronto, Stouffville, Pickering, Uxbridge and surrounding areas.
