The OLMS monitors a number of conditions, including engine revolutions, engine temperature, and vehicle mileage to calculate precisely when to come in for an oil change. As soon as you notice your vehicle’s OLS light illuminate, it’s time to schedule your next GM oil change near Macomb Township.
How to Check Your Oil Level
Even with an OLS, it's important to keep track of your oil level. Always consult your Chevy Owner's Manual for the proper procedure to how to check your oil level. While older models use an oil dipstick for checking the oil level manually, many newer vehicles monitor oil levels electronically.
