Go by the oil minder on the dash. The wrench light and type of service required will be displayed on the dash when it is time.
Instead of judging only by miles driven, the maintenance system in the car calculates oil change intervals by not only miles driven, but total RPMs maximum RPMs, idle times, etc.
It's a much more "accurate" way to determine when a change is needed.
(This is of course aside from the initial break-in procedure for a new CT, which is outlined in the owner's manual.)
Correct, the maintenance minder system in the CT does it's calculations based on the use of the recommended 0 weight oil.So the type of oil one uses (dino / synthetic) never comes into play? In all of my cars I run Mobile1 and normally change the oil between 8,000 and 10,000 miles. But if the CT will decide regardless of oil type then I need to rethink this as I am ok paying more for synthetic because I can run it longer...
I was referring to synthetic vs dino oil - not necessarily a different weight.Correct, the maintenance minder system in the CT does it's calculations based on the use of the recommended 0 weight oil.
(As far as I know) There is no way to stipulate another weight oil in the carputer.
