V6 come with Dino or Synthetic.

You guys are giving conflicting answers.
Who has the manual or factory info on the type of oil in the V6 from the factory?

ummmm maybe cuz you just talked to somebody that answers phones and have no idea, a GM employee that worked on the camaro project said it has mobil 1


so who you gonna believe


besides dude MOVE ON what does it matter, it don't even if you brought a new filter and your own oil and change it in the lot as soon as it comes off the truck the car is already gonna have about 4 miles on it plus a pretty good amount of idle time. it's done, it's perfectly fine, it's GM job to do this kinda thing, MOVE ON!

i dont understand why your saying to move on?? people who have the v6 would like to know an accurate answer everywhere you go you get ten different answers, the reason it matters is if its regular oil ive heard to wait to change to a synthetic until around 3000 miles, if its already synthetic in it the im going to keep using it, i dont understand why people have to argue and say to move on when people just want an answer without a smart ass remark

Why dont you just change it to Dino to be sure..put some miles on it then switch to synthetic..oil changes are cheap
