Finally got to do her first oil change. Fresh Penzoil 5w-30 Synthetic Blend and Fram filter (was going to use Wix but the filter Cap Wrench wouldn't fit it.

Man... was that oil filthy! And after only 4,000 miles. Do they put used oil in these cars from the factory?

You do know Fram is one of the worst filters you can use (WIX being one of the best), don't you? And with PP so cheap, why did you choose a blend? Just curious.

Well, as I said, I intended to use Wix but couldn't get a cap wrench to fit it. Next change I'll get a better filter but I've never had a problem with Fram.

GM recommends using a syn-blend, page 11-12 of the manual. And Pennzoil is on their approved list.

Oh yeah - drained my catch can, too. It ain't much in 4K miles, but it also ain't baked onto my valves.

HAHA!! I wish I'd seen a pic of yours before I tried the install. I was racking my brain trying to figure out how to get it extended and in a position to be able to drain it.

OMG Penzoil and a blend.. hope you not planning on flooring the car much.,.
use Mobil 1 or top line castrol synthetic or go all out with Amsoil Dominator Racing Oil
Better safe then sorry..

As a matter of fact, I don't floor it much, but I can't imagine how Pennzoil stayed in business for all these years, the way you guys talk about it. And the manual recommends synthetic blend.

Please elaborate on your objections to Penn Syn-Blend... and not just "Me and my buddies don't use it so it must not be any good", please.
