Asked by Jan 03, 2017 at 12:53 PM about the 2007 Chevrolet HHR Panel LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Does the cars on board oil change adapt
to this type of oil or should it be changed
at 5,000 no matter what?

The on board computer measures many things to calculate when an oil change is necessary. It does not perform any analysis on the engine oil. Why not just change it at 5,000 to 7,500 miles using a good quality name brand oil. Synthetic or not, it doesn't make much of a difference in a non-turbo charged or non-supercharged application.
