Oil Life System
Many of today's vehicles are equipped with an Oil Life Monitoring System (OLMS). This system interprets your vehicle's speed and engine temperature and continuously monitors operating conditions, which helps determine when it's time for an oil change.
The OLMS monitors a number of conditions, including engine revolutions, engine temperature, and miles driven to let you know precisely when to come in for an oil change. As soon as you notice your vehicle's OLS light illuminate, it's time for service.
Checking Your Oil Level
Even with an OLS, it's important to keep track of your oil level. Always consult your vehicle's Owner's Manual for the proper procedure to check your oil level. You'll get a more accurate dipstick reading by following those instructions.
Oil Change Warning Signs
Remaining Engine Oil LIfe
A quick inspection will determine your vehicle's remaining oil life percentage (applicable to vehicles with the GM Oil Life Monitoring System). This may be helpful, especially if you are approaching your next oil change.
Your tires are part of what keep your vehicle moving safely down the road. The Certified Service experts check to make sure your tires are properly aligned, balanced, and in top shape. This will help ensure the optimum performance and safety of your tires.
Wiper Blades and Glass Condition
Your wiper blades are essential, especially when it's raining. The operation and condition of front and rear wipers are checked to make sure they will work well when you need them. A visual inspection of your windshield is completed to check for cracks or chips and the inspection may help prevent further damage down the road if these issues are addressed.
Fluid levels are checked, including the brake reservoir and windshield washer fluid, to be sure they are at optimal levels.
To help keep your brakes performing at their best, an inspection is performed on the condition of your brake system, including lines, hoses, and the parking brake, as well as measurements of the front and rear linings.
Battery Condition and Connections
No one wants to be stuck with a dead battery! A quick battery test will determine the health of your battery, and a visual inspection will check to be sure the battery cables and connections are in top working order.
Additional Car Inspections
An additional vehicle inspection of critical systems is performed to check for visible leaks that might indicate a concern. The condition of other vehicle components is also visually inspected.
A brief assessment will make sure you are connected with your OnStar system subscription
Oil Change FAQ
What do I need to do when my "CHANGE OIL SOON" message displays?
When the "Change Engine Oil Soon" message appears, oil change service is necessary for the vehicle as soon as possible, within the next 600 miles.
Based on driving conditions, the mileage at which an oil change is indicated can vary considerably. For the oil life system to work properly, the system must be reset every time the oil is changed. Kunes Superstore of Stoughton has Certified Service expert technicians who will perform this work and reset the system
How can I be sure to get the correct type of motor oil for my vehicle?
Consult your vehicle Owner's Manual or visit the Buick/GMC Certified Service experts at Kunes Superstore of Stoughton to be sure you get the proper oil for your vehicle. For 2011 or newer vehicles, dexos1™ Full Synthetic is the recommended oil specification (dexos1™ for gasoline engines, dexos2™ for light-duty diesel engines, 15W40 CJ-4 for Duramax diesel engines). Advantages of dexos1™ Full Synthetic over conventional motor oil include improved oil performance and protection, increased piston cleanliness, reduced oil consumption, and greater viscosity control.
Should the engine oil be replaced every 3,000 miles?
Depending on the age of your vehicle, driving habits, and road conditions, your engine may be designed to go longer than 3,000 miles between oil changes. Always be sure to check your engine oil level regularly, even with an OLMS.
Does regularly changing my oil filter help with the life of my engine?
Yes. An oil filter helps ensure your engine is lubricated with clean oil, which is important for optimal engine performance. Both your vehicle's oil and oil filter should be changed at least as often as recommended by your OLMS and/or Owner's Manual.
Do I need a new filter every time I get an oil change?
Yes, having your oil and oil filter changed, at least as often as recommended by the manufacturer, is important.
