Important: The following information is applicable to the “Chevrolet Complete Care Program (U.S.)” for Chevrolet dealers in United States.  Dealers in Canada should continue to refer to guidelines contained in the latest version of HOL 2014-601 for the “2-Year Scheduled Lube-Oil-Filter Maintenance Program (Canada)”.

Recommendation/Instructions

The 2014-2015 Chevrolet Complete Care Program for Corvettes was designed to take into account Mobil1 is the oil of choice for many Corvette owners.

As a reminder, dealers are required to use Mobil 1 when performing oil changes on ALL 2014-2016 Corvettes through the Chevrolet Complete Care Program.

Current reimbursement levels for Corvette are based on Mobil 1 usage. Please remind all personnel that only Mobil 1 should be used.

In addition, please refer to Global Connect message # G_0000205212 (U.S.) for details on dry sump equipped (Z51, Z52, and Z06) Corvettes.

The non-Z51 Stingrays also receive Mobil1 with the Dexos spec while under the Chevrolet Complete Care program.

The only difference is non-Z51 Stingrays do not receive the 500 mile break-in oil change

GM has changed the required maintenance schedule for all 2016 Z51, Z52 and Z06 Corvettes equipped with dry sump systems.

The new schedule will require the oil/filter be changed immediately after the break-in period, which occurs after the first 500 miles of operation.

Once the break-in oil change is performed and the Oil Life Monitoring system is reset, customers should follow the Oil Life Monitoring system for all future oil change needs.

Tip: Only use Mobil 1 when performing an oil change on any Corvette under the Chevrolet Complete Care Program.

An additional oil change has been added to the required maintenance schedule. Up to five oil changes for 2014 and 2015 (2016 will only get three) are now covered as part of the Chevrolet Complete Care program, which covers 2 years/24,000 miles (38,600 km) of select required maintenance.

Please refer to the TechLink Magazine dated January 2015 titled Break-in Oil Change for Corvette Included in Chevrolet Complete Care Program

Use Mobil 1® 15W-50 engine oil for track events or competitive driving.

Note: If the instrument cluster displays the DIC ENGINE OIL HOT message, Stop and allow the vehicle to idle until it cools down.

Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.
