I see no need to spend the extra money on synthetic oil its only a tahoe... Just think about it this way once you go synthetic i hear your not suppose to go back to conventional oil. I would stay conventional :imo .
On the weekends I work on my truck, especially during the summer, I could just lay under the truck for hours looking at stuff, taking naps, etc.I spend like 25% of the time just checking out stuff.
I have never tried it but if you remove the filter doesn't all of your oil drain out or is the pan actually lower and you only lose a quart?i have a friend thats a dealer for amsoil, he says if you change eveything to amsoil synthetic (motor,trans,rear end) you can get a 2-3 MPG differnce.
he also talked about a deal that when running they're synthetic you dont have to change your oil for 25,000mi.......just a 12,500 filter change,add a quart, and run it.......
i wont buy into synthetic, if its so good why do some "high performance" people run regular oil? have a friend in sprint cars...ran synthetic and lost oil pressure......to 0!
No, only the oil that is in the filter and passage leading to the filter. Most of the oil is in the oilpan. Depending on the size of the filter it could be a quart but on these trucks its probly less.I have never tried it but if you remove the filter doesn't all of your oil drain out or is the pan actually lower and you only lose a quart?
