2014 ~ 2015 oil consumption

Unread post by SomeCant » April 9th, 2018, 3:00 pm

if you have a Colorado ute or 7 that was built around 2014 to 2015 check your oil usage because there is a problem with some of them and holden will replace your old 5w 30 oil cap with a 5w 40 and they will put 5w 40 oil in the engine in an attempt to lower the consumption but for many engines this is not fixing the problem.

if your oil cap has 5w 40 printed on it they have changed your cap and might have changed your dipstick to a longer one too

some people and my self have found the dipstick dry after 6k to 10k kms.
my 2015 my16 c7 is going in for a new engine this week but my 2013 ute is fine so check your oil before your warranty expires.

you can also join this facebook group that has many people with this issue

here are the measurements of the original dipstick


and original oil cap, the owners manual should still show 5w 30.
