I prefer regular oil at the recommend changes. I was surprised by his response instructing me to drive an unsafe vehicle. Allow the old oil to drain out for at least a few minutes or until it slows to an occasional drip. Over tightening the filter may damage the o-ring and cause a leak to develop. Can someone tell me what the oil capacity is please? I then limped the vehicle home at 20 mph.
I worry that the oil filter won't hold up for longer intervals.

The vehicle was towed to a dealer where a diagnostic test was not performed. We removed the fuse that was associated to the stabilitrack and for a moment worked. How many quarts of oil does this take? Temporarily replace the oil filler cap and push down the oil level dipstick. When this happens it slows the speed at which the truck could go if it sensed the roads may be icy.
It should be a recall. The add mark normally means add 1 quart on a V8. Pour in about 5 quarts of the Vortec 4800 engine's 6 quart total capacity for an oil change with oil filter replacement. The contact inspected the engine and observed fumes which started a small fire. Problem is that I do not have the owner's manual.
The vehicle started to run extremely rough and I pulled into a parking lot. Dip your pinky finger in to some new 5W-30 oil and lubricate the rubber o-ring on the new oil filter. Even when braking it seemed to not want to brake. Start the engine, let it idle for a few minutes, shut off the engine, and allow it to rest for 5-10 minutes while the oil drains back to the oil pan. Then while searching on you tube, we found that a sensor was replaced on other trucks.
It's also a good idea to watch your driveway, garage or parking spot for drops of oil and check the oil level on the dipstick during the next few days. Your owner's manual will list the capacity. I recently purchased a 1999 4. Also, if anyone knows where I can get an owner's manual for a 1999 Silverado, I would appreciate that info as well. Twist off the oil filler cap in the counter clockwise direction and pull up the yellow handled dipstick an inch or two.

My oil pressure sending unit has been replaced twice in two months. I recommend buying the oil filter since it has excellent reviews on Amazon. Problem is less frequent when using factory remote start. Re-insert the oil drain bolt and tighten it to just past hand tight or about 20 ft lbs of torque. Make sure that the rubber o-ring from the old oil filter is not stuck to the engine.
I was traveling in left lane and several vehicles swerved around me as I moved to right off road, beyond white line to stop my truck. Refrigerant and oil capacity guides are based on data provided by sources such as AllData and Mitchell. Then engage the emergency parking brake and chock the front wheels of the truck to prevent it from moving. The first steps are to warm up the engine for a few minutes, park the truck on a level surface, and turn off the engine.
