I have a 2013 verano premium that needs an oil change. Should I get full or blended synthetic dexos1 oil? Does oil filter matter as long as it fits? Do I need any special tools like a new filter wrench etc.? 15842172209341560512598.jpg

I would advise you to not follow the oil life monitor if you value your engine. My advice, change oil every 3,500 miles regardless what the oil life monitor percentage states.

3,500 mile oil changes are a waste of money, Todays oils are much better than back in the 50's and 60's. Any oil that meets the Dexos1 Gen 2 spec will make the 7000 - 7500 mile avg of the OLM standing on its head.
