Is the engine in your vehicle a 3500 or 3900 V6? Or is it the V8?

Well obviously since my wife is taking care of the car because Im deployed. Here is a update. Once again DAMN OIL CHANGE, and they having my wife coming every thousand miles, the funny thing is my warrenty ends in febuary. So I told her to take the car at the end of this month that they can check it. Until then I wont know. I will keep updateing when I get the word. I do feel you guys pain. But since I was a GM Tech back in the day I am familiar with GM vehicles so worst comes to worst Ill do the job myself since the dealer is giving me the run around.

Just had my second oil change since November 2012 as indicated by the "change oil soon" message. This makes the second time I was told that no oil showing on dipstick. I have a 2009 Impala LTZ 3.9 liter with only 60,000 miles....something is bad wrong here as this car should not be using that much oil!!! Looks like I am losing some through the exhaust..... I am very disappointed! This is my third Impala I have owned and never seen anything like this. Sad to say...getting rid of it soon to trade in on a new 2013 Ford Explorer. Goodbye GM, I am done!

If you want for us to follow up on this with your dealer (if involved), please send us more information via email at socialmediagm.com (include your name and contact information, the last 8 digits of your VIN and mileage, and a summary of the situation).

Well they finally found out what is wrong with my 2008 Impala 3.9 and hopefully this will resolve the problem. Its something to do with the vavles , I'm thinking valve seals or valve guides. Well they taking the vehicle Monday 8th of April and keeping it up to a week. I will keep everyone updated once the job is done. Oh yeah I lost about 2 qts. in 800 miles according to oil consumption test.
