Does my vehicle require a specific amount of motor oil?
Yes and your vehicles owner’s manual will contain information containing to the oil specification and capacity for your engine.
Is there a way to tell if my motor oil needs to be changed or is running low?
Yes. If equipped, your vehicle’s oil-life monitoring system will inform you when your motor oil needs to be changed, or, as a minimum, once every year. If your vehicle does not have an oil life monitoring system, change the oil per owner's manual guidelines. Periodically check your vehicle’s motor oil dipstick for your oil levels. For more information regarding vehicle specific oil life and appropriate oil levels, check your vehicles owner’s manual.
Will using synthetic motor oil extend the change period as shown by the oil life monitor?
No, the oil life monitor is not impacted by the type of oil used, it is only influenced by the amount and type of driving. Synthetic oil will, however, improve the protection provided to the engine by the lubricant.
