Pg 11-2 of the 2010 owners manual. If you didn't get one with the car go to the chevy website, download it and RTDT....

Mobile 5w30, 8 quarts in the pan and fill the filter before install on my LS3.
I always fill the new filter, that way the engine has oil pressure ASAP.

4 quarts 15w50 and 4 quarts 5w30 mobil 1. And to those of you that leave smart ass answers for someone trying to learn knock it off. How did you learn or do you just know everything? We ALL have the love for Camaros in common. We wonder why this country is so jacked up is because so many people treat each other like assholes. SMH

Does your Canam have a wet clutch? I'm guessing not. It's probably the belt driven automatic?
