I am new to this forum and unfortunately I was unable to find the answer for my issue, so I decided to open a new topic.
I live in a region where air get as hot as 45C degrees (113F) in summer and rarely gets below -10C (14F) in winter.
I drive 2002 Tahoe 5.3LT with 168000 miles on it. And aI am concerned about the engine oil to be used.
I obtained it a year ago from the owner who used 10w40 synthetic oil. I switched to 5w30 as per oil cap and specs.
Though as far as I know 5w30 is only suitable for usage in environments up to 30C degrees the engine sounds and feels smoother...(I may be mistaken)
I think about switching to more suitable oil for hot weather conditions, especially after I saw notes about high mileage engines must be lubricated with more viscose oil..(10w40, or 15w50 or any other)
Could you please recommend the right oil to use?
I am looking forward to keep up the engine in the best shape - so price does not matter
Thanks in advance!
I recently became acknowledged about the myth of the 3,000 mile oil change on newer vehicles with advanced oil. I own a 2006 silverado 2500 v8 6L WT and I change my oil every 5k miles with Mobil synthetic 5w-30. I cannot seem to find the exact information within my car manual or my Haynes/Chilton manual for the recommended interval between oil changes. Is there anywhere I can look up how often I can change my oil with the specific engine of within my truck? I have heard some oils can go 10k+ miles on some vehicles. I'd love to do less oil changes, but don't want to endanger my engine since oil changes are so quick though I'd love to save money too! Where can I find this exact information or do you have any other suggestions? Thanks in advance!
