I have a 2012 Camaro SS and am not sure when to go for the first oil change. I have always heard it’s good to perform the first oil change around 1,000 miles to help get rid of any metal shavings, etc. from the new engine break-in. However, my Camaro SS came with synthetic oil from the factory, and has an oil life monitor. The monitor states I have about 75% oil life left at 950 miles. It took me 4 months to get that far, so I don’t put a lot of miles on the car.
Should I be “old school” and change the oil early (1,000 - 1,500 miles) or wait until the oil life monitor tells me I’m down to 20% or so left? Also, should the same be applied to changing the rear differential (limited slip) fluid?
Thanks for the help.
