coonman i can also tell you that you will not hurt anything adding conventional to full or semi synthetic unless the vehicle requires full synthetic then not smart to mix it. i assume with as many issues as you have with your colorado it is not a 2010 or newer as most gm vehicles from gm take dexos certified oil which is full synthetic.

with all this said just buy oil and a filter and chnge the oil then use your used oil in an old sprayer and spray the undercarraige to help with rust.


2011 is the year that sticks in my mind that GM started using Dexos in most vechiles.

Angela, my dad has a Chevy Colorado 2008 with a 5 cylinder engine that uses a lot of oil. I have talked to a mechanic that complained about how difficult things are to take stuff apart on Chevy Colorado. His vechile complaints are legit.

Found citgo synthetic blend not full synthetic at farm fleet , last 2- 5 gallon jugs left it, $22.95 , now got same oil as shop to match it an when I change my oil come up , ideally not good to mix brand names an add different brand oil to what oil in motor all time, I have cpl qts STP brand motor oil use up , that stuff cheap but doubt buy it again, they sell lot stp oil at auto zone, I rember back when late teens use stop additives in oil burners, thick gooey stuff I wouldn't dream put in motor nowadays, it would blow up or ruin engine
