Default Re: oil filters

All good info. The early 2.4 GDI motors really had problems and had to have the oil companies come to the rescue with DEXOS. Oil quality and change frequency is super important now with Variable Valve Timing and Variable Valve Lift technology. Any kind of debris will plug the tiny holes will make lights come on and cost money.
As an outside salesman I bought a new 06 HHR with a 2.4 (non GDI) for the mileage and its workability . My recipe was AC Delco (Hengst) oil filters and Mobil 1. I drove it 368k before a box truck with a lift gate backed into it and totalled it.
