Does anyone know any specifics about changing the oil in the subject motor?

I have done hundreds of oil changes, but never on this engine. I was just wondering if there were any tips or hints out there.

Thanks,

WKS :confused:

if its a 3.6 in a traverse,or other lambda have fun. remove the filter from the top, takes a 48 filter.
should be about 6 quarts.

3.6 in a malibu, never done one before, assume its similar to the other 3.6 liter high feature engines.

Some of the HF's use a cartridge instead...top removal too...none of the Chevy's...just the CTS, STS, SRX & G8 so far...

the 3.6 in my CTS requires Mobil 1 (or similar synthetic) per the oil filler cap! Did they do that on the Chevy models? FYI one of the easiest oil changes around!

no the chevy vehicles dont require mobil 1. dont know why cadillac does either.
