I have and 2007.5 duramax and I am having some issues with my DIC for Oil changes. First two went normal about 1% drop for every 100 miles or about 10K per oil change Exactly what I experienced with my first two trucks. Right after my 3rd oil change things went bad. after about 600 miles the % would drop about 10 points and then do nothing for about 400 miles and then take a 15 point drop and then another 200-400 miles and another drop only greater. Dealer said Chev told them it was a vacuum leak. THey checked and found a vacuum leak and the problem went away for about 1K miles(normal 1% drop). Problem returned after that and they told me since I changed my own oil the couldn't prove anything and no leaks this time. I had them change the oil (about 1200 miles on it). And started the clock over. WOrked normal until about 300 miles and then dropped to 90% stayed there for 400 miles and then dropped 14% in just under 50 miles. NOw they are telling me that they can't find anywhere that it says I should get 10K between oil changes. ANyone seen this in there trucks? NO change in the driving conditions or they way I drive this truck no heavy towing About 50% 3 mile trips and 50% trips over 25 miles. Same driving different results. I suspect by reading some the blogs that maybe the have changed the programming for the oil monitor the last time I was in. Can they do that. At the rate this thing drops it looks like I will be lucky to get 2K between oil changes as everytime it drops it drops with larger percentages.

Any INfo Greatly appreciated

diesels have vacuum?

the DIC oil life readings are all over the map. I would just just note the mileage from your last oil change and monitor it manually.

Actually I could do that but I am a bit anal about having everything work right and since it is under warranty for a bit longer I think they should fix it and since they don't seem to know how they should learn and maybe I can help them
