Engine oil for a GMC Acadia needs to be of the correct SAE viscosity grade and meet the Dexos1 specification.

The best motor oil for GMC Acadia will vary depending on the year, make, and model of your vehicle. However, there are a few general types that work well in most cases. In order to choose the right type of oil for your car, you’ll need to know three things: the viscosity rating, weight, and type of engine oil.

Viscosity is a measure of how thick or thin a liquid is- the thicker it is, the higher the viscosity rating. Weight refers to how much force it takes to move one unit of an object through a fluid- in other words, how dense the fluid is. Finally, engine oil comes in main varieties: synthetic and conventional.

When to Change Engine Oil

The engine computer in this car tells the driver when to replace the oil and filter. This is based on a variety of criteria, including engine revolutions, engine temperature, and kilometers traveled. The mileage at which an oil change is indicated can vary considerably depending on road conditions. Every time the oil is replaced, the system must be reset for the oil life system to function correctly.

When the system determines that the oil life has been reduced, it advises that an oil change is required. A CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message appears on the display. Oil changes should be carried out as soon as possible within the next 1 000 km (600 mi). It’s conceivable that, if you’re driving in ideal conditions, the oil life system will say you need an oil change for up to a year.

Your engine oil and filter must be replaced at least once a year, and the system must be reset at this time. Your dealer will send trained service personnel who will carry out this operation as well as reset the system. It’s also critical to keep an eye on the oil levels over time, especially after completing an oil drain period.

If the car’s computer is ever reset inadvertently, the oil must be changed at 5 000 km (3,000 mi) since the last change. Make sure to reset the oil life system whenever the oil is changed.
