Q: can i put dexos oil in my sunfire?

asked by on

Can i replace the oil in my 2000 sunfire with dexos oil?

My car has 180000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You sure can, it needs to be 5w-30 which is the correct viscosity (flow rate of oil) for your vehicle. I recommend the use of this oil.
