The GM Oil Life System
Most GM vehicles are now equipped with the GM Oil Life System. This system actually senses your vehicle’s speed and engine temperature and can continuously monitor operating conditions. This helps determine when it’s time to change the oil.
This system can actually monitor your personal driving habits and your area’s climate condition to let you know precisely when to come in for a Goodwrench Oil Change. When the light comes on, you come in. It’s that simple. It’ll will save you money and help reduce oil waste.
Your Goodwrench Technician will reset your Oil Life Monitor System after an Oil change. Ask your Goodwrench technician how, or consult your Owners Manual if necessary.
Always consult your Owners Manual for the proper procedure to check your oil level. You’ll get a more accurate dipstick reading by following those instructions.
How to know when it’s time for an oil change
- Your Owners manual recommends you check oil level each time you refuel.
- To check oil must be warm and car on level round
- Turn the engine off
- Wait a few minutes for oil to drain back into pan
- Remove the Dipstick and wipe clean
- Reinsert stick and remove to take the reading

Maintenance and the Environment
Vehicles with properly maintained engines and emission control systems pollute less and are more fuel efficient. They perform better, last longer, have higher resale value and save you money. Here are some tips for keeping your vehicle running at top efficiency.
- Follow GM’s car maintenance guidelines to help identify any problems before they become serious. Your Owner’s Manual provides recommended maintenance intervals and product specifications.
- If you notice a change in the way your vehicle functions or if your fuel efficiency drops, get your vehicle checked promptly.
- Change your vehicle’s oil regularly. Your GM Dealer is equipped to dispose of waste oil.
- Change the air filter as the manual recommends. Between changes, inspect it by taking the filter out and tapping it. If dirt falls out, replace the filter.
- Do a tire check-up. Every two weeks, check your treads and sidewalls for wear.
- Follow it up by checking your tire pressure. Maintaining the correct tire pressure increases safety, saves you money and reduces pollution.
- Check your antifreeze/coolant level weekly. Never remove the radiator cap unless the engine is cold!
- Let the expert technicians at Goodwrench Service keep your vehicle tuned up. The fuel efficiency of most cars can be improved by as much as 6 percent with a minor tune-up.
- Keep the brakes maintained.
Listen to your vehicle.
Long trips often include frequent stops. Make sure you’re prepared by having your brakes checked. If your vehicle pulls to the side, or starts making weird sounds when you stop or slow down, it may be time to replace your brakes.

Why can’t I just use water in my radiator?
Your vehicle’s coolant system is set for the proper coolant mix. With plain water, or the wrong mix, your engine could get too hot, but you wouldn’t get the “overheated” warning. Your engine could be badly damaged and might even catch fire. Also, too much water in the mix can freeze and crack the engine, radiator, heater core and other parts. Damage resulting from using plain water or the wrong mixture would not be covered by your warranty. See your Owner’s Manual for more specific information.
A 50/50 mixture of water and the proper coolant will
- Give freezing protection down to -37° C (-34° F)
- Give boiling protection up to 129° C (256° F)
- Protect against rust and corrosion
- Help maintain the proper engine temperature
- Let the warning lights and gauges work as they should
