What: Mobile 1
When: 6/3/22
Where: Chevy Dealership Service Center

Why: get the oil clean and remove the sludge -
I went about 4600 miles this oil change interval
Light went off early like usual at about 3200 miles - not sure why this happens


Cost: Very expensive - about $120

Other : Tire rotation

Parking brake/e-brake adjust

Comments:
I always notice a change to the engine performance immediately after the oil change when I leave.

I'd say a 3000 mile oil change interval is well needed, this last oil change I did at about that mileage left the oil very dark, without even a tinge of gold like the new oil has. Though I think it's possible previous owners didn't keep up the oil changes as well as they should have, and sludge had built up inside. Hence the oil getting dirty earlier.

I believe in mobile 1 statements that the oil will last and hold its function for longer oil change intervals

$120 is way cheaper than an engine.
the quick lube place was about 90 dollars but of no use to me - good experience though
