Engine Oil Questions - Duramax

Postby CJMB10000 [OP] » Oct 02 2011, 3:19pm

Hi I'm Jorg and I'm new to this forum, I have a a Chevrolet Silverado 2005 3500 Duramax diesel that I've just bought 2 weeks ago and I need to change the engine oil (Oil light is on). I need to know what oil to use and how much of it, which filters to use and if I change it every time I change oil. I do about 3 km a month.


Thanks, Jorg

I used to change mine every 5K miles with Rotello/WIX filter, but I have since switched to AMSOIL and go about 15-18K. I use AMSOIL 15W-40

For the filter I use AMSOIL

Its spendy for sure, but works out in the long run not having to change every 5K.
