Yep, typical UOA for a new engine. Things will settle down. Thanks for sharing.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

Because I was using castrol EP and it did not have the dexos cert so I switched to M1 for this vehicle.

Looking good. M1 EP is a bargain for what it is, with the ~25% PAO.
Does the OLM allow 7,500 miles like my Chevy 1.5T Equinox?

I just go by the oil life monitor. It was down to about 7% when I changed it last time and just a little over 6k miles since last change.
