  3. 2013 1.4t. Dexos1 is kicking my hard

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo

  4. Dealer out Dexos1 inside car

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi everyone, I recently just had an oil change done as per the dealer no cost maintenance. I always read the part numbers on the work sheet that is given back as a receipt, and I noticed after looking the oil part number that was used up, that it was for a Dexos1 oil. Now, I know the diesel...
  5. Dexos1 - Amsoil

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Can someone give me a straight answer on this? Amsoil isn't dexos1 approved, but will my warranty stay intact if something should go wrong? I feel like everything on their website is just hearsay and we're just supposed to believe them. I can't imagine it would bankrupt them to get it...
  6. GM Official dexos1 oil list as of 2/10/13

    Gen1 Powertrain
    Here is a link to the latest GM dexos oil lists. The last update was done as of 2/10/13. Link: GM dexos information center What I find interesting is the inclusion of Castrol products, and of 5w-20. Still no Valvoline/Ashland products. My recommendation is to stick with a 5w-30 dexos1 oil...
  7. Trying different full synthetic dexos1 oils...

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Instead of my now-customary Quaker State Ultimate Durability 5w-30, today's oil change at 27k miles at 7500 mile change interval and 26% on the OLM got Peak Synthetic 5w-30. Both are dexos1 labeled oils. I can't tell a difference with the butt dyno between the two. The engine sounds the same...
  8. Cruze oil change - dexos1 - ?

    General Discussion
    The manual states: blah, blah... check with your dealer... whether the oil is approved to the dexos1 specification. So.. I was at the local Wally Mart in the oil section and I could not find anything with the dexos1 "certification mark" - not Pennzoil, not Quaker State, not Valvoline - not...
  9. FYI Royal Purple is now Dexos1 certified!

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I'm a huge fan of RP. I've had nothing but fantastic luck with the oil. I was dissapointed when I noticed that GM voids warranties when non DEXOS 1 (certified) oils are used... Royal Purple hadn't been through certification... I emailed RP about 2-3 months ago and they stated they had no...
  10. ACDelco 5W-30 dexos1 VOA

    General Discussion
    Hey guys. I picked up a quart of the ACDelco 5W-30 oil at my local dealership. It was $5.68. I can buy Mobil 1 5W-30 or Mobil 1 EP 5W-30 for cheaper at Walmart. I have read that the Cruze comes with the ACDelco oil from the factory, and most dealers use it for the oil changes on 2011+ GM cars...

  12. Old Stock Mobil1 Dexos1 approved?

    General Discussion
    O.k. I'm ready to change the oil, the cruze is got 2000 km ( 1600 miles ). I know it's pre-mature, but I always remove factory oil within 2000 km, and go with the OLM after that, using synthetic oil. The problem I'm facing is, I can't find new stock of mobil1 with the dexos approved label on. I...
