Is your 2011 leaking? I had a small leak in the power steering of my 2011 Santa Fe since it was new it leaked very slightly. Is your 3.5 noisy on start up like the rest of them?

Heavy Duty Engine Oil (HDEO) - Diesel/Gas Pickups/Trucks/Vans
I wish I could just leave the engine running all winter, nothing better than a defrosted, toasty vehicle in January, but I do have to shut it off from time to time. -25C is a regular occurrence here in Dec/Jan/Feb, -30 to -35C occurs less often.

Assuming it's a 4.3L the Blazer will do well on the Autozone WPP 15W40. My Aunt had a 4.3L that went 700,000 km before she sold it and is now approaching 800,000 km and has had Rotella and Supertech (WPP) 15W40 for the last 500,000+ km.
