Q: What kinda oil does my 2017 camaro ss take

What kind of oil should I be using in my 2017 camaro ss

My car has 4000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Chevy recommends a 5W30 weight. Synthetic oil would be the way to go as the supercharger adds a lot of stress to the engine. It should take 9-10 quarts for a complete fill. Double check the "specifications and capacities" section of your owner’s manual to make sure you use oil with the correct specifications recommended for your engine. Also be sure to use a good quality oil filter. follow the recommendations for oil change intervals recommended in the owner’s manual at the very least, although more frequent oil changes with turbo charged and supercharged engines helps a bunch with engine longevity. Remeber that oil changes are recommended by time OR mileage - whichever comes first. So if for example, the recommended interval is 6 months or 5,000 miles. If you only travel 3,000 miles in those 6 months, the oil should still be changed at the 6 month point.
