    WARNING
    Do NOT remove the oil plug when the engine is warm. The engine should be cool to the touch, about 2-3 hours after running. Removing the oil pump when the engine is still warm can cause hot oil to overflow. This could result in loss of oil and possible personal injury.

    1. Remove the wiring harness shield or engine acoustic cover, as applicable.
    2.  
    3. Use a rag to clean the area around the oil fill plug before removing it.
    4.  
    5. Remove the oil plug. The oil level should be maintained to the bottom of the plug threads. Do not use petroleum based oil. When adding oil, use only GM part no. 12345982 synthetic oil, or equivalent. Failure to do so may cause supercharger failure.
