Oil Life Monitor
Hey guys! I'm new..I have a question for here. I have a 2015 Colorado Z-71 crew cab 4WD with the 3.6L V-6. I bought the truck brand spankin' new. In fact, I ordered it for myself. The first oil change I got about 5,500 miles out of the oil before the monitor told me time for a change. The second oil change I got a little over 4,000 miles. The third oil change I got about 3,500 miles. And now the oil change coming up, I have gotten about 2,700 miles out of the oil before the monitor told me It's time for an oil change. My Colorado has only 16,000 miles on it now. I have owned it for 1 year and 10 months now. Why does the oil life keep decreasing and the Oil Life Monitor coming on sooner and sooner? I do live in northwestern PA and I do use my remote starter during the winter months to thaw the windows out but I'm out there and going down the road before the first 10 minute cycle is up, so it's never sitting and idling for real long, this is before the morning commute to work and before driving home from work. So I do get that remote starting a vehicle has a little bit of an impact on oil life. I usually drive the speed limit to and from work, I never get into high RPM's while driving, I live in a small town just outside of the city in the country so "start/stop" isn't much at all. My drive to and from work is around 35 miles round trip each day. The dealership is the only one who changes my oil, not a mom and pop joint, not myself, JUST the dealership. The oil life percentage is always reset after each oil change too. Just can't understand why my "oil life" keeps decreasing.
