dexos

  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Last oil change I used Mobil 1 extended performance high mileage oil and I assumed that it was dexos. I just realized that it wasn’t dexos and I’m wondering it could cause any harm to my engine? I don’t care about the warranty because i’m already past the warranty, i’m just wondering if it would...

    What is your opinion on fully syntehtic DEXOS 2 spec 5W30 oil sold by GM dealers for use in diesel vehicles? is this decent quality oil to be used in Cruze diesel engine? In terms of maintaining the engine warranty, this oil is what GM prefers that we use. The price from my local GM dealer...

    I know there are many very informative posts out here related to oil. Very informative, but I’ve made no conclusive headway in a situation I have. I purchased a used 2013 with only 32,000 kms (20,000 miles) on it. I’ve put 10000 kms (6,000 miles). The dealership changed the oil at purchase using...

  6. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I'm always on the look for new oils available locally at great prices. I store in the Twin Cities Metro area had 5 quart jugs of Pennzoil Euro L 5W-30 on the shelf. This store went through an entire store refresh last summer. Maybe this is a new product being stocked nationally. I don't know...

  8. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    so i was writing up a customer that just bought a 2016 2500hd with the duramax engine... that truck still has DEF and all the emmisions junk the cruze does. I remember we here at the dealer use mobile 1 delvak oil in 15-40. i confirmed with parts department that it is in FACT NOT dexos 2...
  9. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I have a simple question, has anyone else noticed that there are 2 different Dexos 2 oils available? When I bought my diesel a month ago my father changed the oil at his dealership since the car was a leftover model. He used Dexos 2 in a green container that was marked fully synthetic. I just...
  10. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So checked the oil on our car and is just down a couple hatches from the top. I wanted to get a quart of oil to have on hand so when I need it can just top it off. Well went all over today and all I can find is full synthetic 5w30 dexos 2 oils.. So I went to our dealer and they didn't have any...
  11. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hello, I had a scare as indicated in a previous post as I thought the dealer put the wrong oil in my CTD but they didnt. If you get your CTD oil changed and see part 88864041 vs 88865157 (AC Delco) on the ticket - all is well. What they used then is: Mobil Super 3000 Xe 5w-30 - Synthetic...

    Somehow NAPA is running a $10 off of $20 coupon and my local store was listed. Picked up my spare fluids and saved!

    Called around the Dallas Fort Worth area to dealerships in search of Dexos 2 Oil. The results were scary, so far only one dealership in Dallas even has it on order and not in stock, not in stock, not in stock, was all I was told all day. I found one place that said they were just using Napa oil...
  14. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So I didn't think it would be an issue when I purchased the new diesel but I was trying to find Dexos 2 oil and I can't find it anywhere here in the states. I have the list of oils that are approved and have been searching high and low online and even stopped in at a local parts house but nobody...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    The stern faced woman at the dealer told me I'd be sorry if I didn't use Mobil 1 ONLY. Warranty voided, blah blah blah. I have never been bashful about using store brand oil as long as it has the correct API service rating. I always used Farm and Fleet full synthetic in my 07 Impala, it was made...
  16. Gen1 Powertrain
    has anyone found oil thats meets the dexos 1 recomendation besides mobil 1 and castrol edge? $50 is too expensive for an oil change and i change mine every 3k even though i probley dont need to.
  17. Gen1 Powertrain
    Has anyone found Pennzoil 5w-30 regular motor oil with the Dexos certification on the container. I am also looking for Mibil-1 5w-30. I live in the Louisville Ky. arera.
