More than likely 10w30. Check your owners manual or call a Chevy

dealer to be sure. Sometimes it is written on the oil cap. The

factory specifies 5w30..in cold climates it helps the oil to flow

better. In warm or hot weather 10w30 is acceptable..but under NO

conditions should the 2.4 engine use any thicker oil..thicker would

be 10w40.. 20w50 etc.
