Also, while CK-4 is ok to use, there is a wide selection of Dexos 2 oils on the market. Should be able to find a good value. There are several 5w30 dexos2 oils on the list. You could also use 0w30. Both are 30 weight oils just with different cold flow rates. Again, dealer or OEM could not tell the difference between a 0w30 and a 5w30 if they wanted to.

Freedom is not the ability to do what you want, but the ability to do what you ought.

Bought one of the last new gmc terrain diesels. Already got 55k on 2017 cruze diesel stick. I probably could have used a better name for this forum, but so be it. Son had an 018 cruze diesel stick but traded it for gas tahoe - he has about 60k on his canyon diesel so far.

Why no topic here for general equinox/terrain diesel discussions? We can start a specific thread to argue about dexos2! I let valvoline do my most recent cruze diesel oil change since their synthetic is on on the dexos2 nice-list.

Reportedly there are about 4000 GMC terrain diesels in USA. Maybe the same number of equinox diesels?

Torque at ya later, folks.

I would like to see that number....i have seen a handful cruze diesels (sold a bit longer) and i have seen another equinox diesel but no terrain diesel.


BTW watch out for your battery if it has spent a long time between date of manufacture and date you took possession. The AGM batteries do not like being left idle for months....A few on this forum have had their battery die on them within a year or less when their new car had been sitting on the dealer lot for 6 to 12 months.


I suspect there only 4 to 5 active members of this forum with diesels.
I hope GM would give us a little tag to stick on the car like "limited edition" !
