Make sure you keep your receipts for the oil and filter. Also write the date and miles in the back of your owners manual along with type and brand of oil. This can help in case you have a catastrophic engine failure while under warranty to prove that oil changes were done according to requirements of GM.

I changed the oil and filter, cleaned the air filter, changed the cabin air filter, and installed spark plug non-foulers for the O2 sensors.
Also cleared the O2 CEL code, we'll see if it stays away with the sensors out of the direct exhaust stream.

Took her on a rural Oregon desert drive and drove the $h1t out it for the first time.
Had a hard time keeping up with my buddy's '13 Shelby GT 500 on the straight aways,
But I sure did have fun trying.

Well, this was actually yesterday, but.....installed my Heritage Grille! So how many of you that have done this upgrade spent 30 minutes during the install to actually clean in places that never get cleaned. I watched an install video that a user posted here (very good video by the way) and he stated 2 - 4 hours. Well, it took me 2 hours and 15 minutes and that was with the time spent to clean behind the front fascia when it was off. That was also with no jack or without removing wheels. Just in the drive way. Pretty easy upgrade, so if you have been shying away from it, don't!

I see she put in a pink air filter too. Where's the Hello Kitty sticker?









Joking, she did a great job. My wife couldn't even find the hood release on ours.
