    Default 08 Silverado oil change

    Can any one tell me how many quarts of oil and a filter size I need for my 08 Silverado?

    I would call the chevy dealer or check with the store that you purchase your filter at.

    Can you take it to the dealership you bought it from and have them do it for you? Then you could ask them what it is for future reference.
