It would be a really good idea to get 4 bottles and drain the nosedrive,refill it and run the car for about 5 to 10 minutes and drain again and refill with clean oil. Gotta make sure ya get all of it out

I use two tools to take the oil out of my super charger, a big plastic syringe I bought in the automotive section at Walmart (it was meant to be used for putting two cycle oil in chainsaws and such) to get the bulk of the old stuff out then the head and tube from a new or clean spray bottle, I use this to suck every last possible drop of oil from the SC before I put new oil in.

But get that stuff outta there before you drive any more on it, look at it this way if GM built a SC that could use engine oil then why do they sell specific SC oil?

Dr. Supercharger sez.......


GM didn't make these superchargers. Eaton did. They say to use the GM supercharger oil they specified to GM.

Our two biggest vendors sell ONE lubricant for these beasts. GM supercharger oil.

A SC is a big investment, and expensive to replace or repair.

Leslie...

I have the FSM here in front of me. If the Dealership guy was trained by GM, the only thing he knows is how to top it off. They are not given a specified change timeframe, only told to top it off.

FSM also sez.. GM Supercharger Happy Juice only. It'* the best $14 you can spend on your car for the holiday.

Bill, there are TSB'* that supercede the FSM'* regarding SC oil and maintenance.

GM is even allowed now to replace just the nosedrive if they wish. There was a time when they would only change the whole SC. Even GM can adapt to the changing times, but just a little slowly.
