    Dumb question but I drove my other car to work today and don't have access to my manuals. I'm planning to change the oil and filter on my 2018 Denali with the 6.2 this weekend and want to buy what I need on the way home. Can someone please tell me the number of quarts and the type of oil I need to buy? Also, what type filter should I buy? Thanks

    Not dumb. Go on GM website for oe stuff or the parts store you’re going to website. They’ll have it ready when you get there usually 6 quarts I use K&N filter and 5w/30 full synthetic or Amsoil but my 6.2 is from the previous model not sure if it changed or where you live needs different weight oil

    Your truck takes 8 quarts of 0W20 oil. ACDelco 10-9232/88865553 for 1 Quart Bottles or 10-9148 for the 5 Quart Bottle. If you cannot get your hands on this, see if they have Shell's Rotella Gas Truck, these both have higher viscosity numbers than Mobil 1.

    The correct oil filter is the PF63E. Since this filter is made from paper, the fibers can clog up the works of the AFM system over time. I like the K&N HP2011 which is what my truck has been using.

    You know you can view your manual on GMs web site right?
