This engine is way advance than your everyday Chevrolet,and will last pass 700 000 kms,but there is a catch.Forget about dealers recycled sh,,ty oil,or no name $2 Walmart oil. I recommend brand name mineral,or any synthetic oil,and regular changes. If not-read about what sludge can do to any engine.
