How many miles on this car?

I would run Mobil 1 with a high efficency filter such as Mobil 1, Pure 1, Amsoil, or K&N.

Run the GM authorized Dexcool 100,000 mile coolant.

Nothing good to say about dexcool! I'd go with standard coolant.

I would use a A/C Delco filter (I think Wal-Mart sells them), I'd use whatever oil I can get, and under no circumstances use dexcool unless your car came with it from the factory and still has it in it. Dexcool sucks. I use Mobil1 in my Mustang but that was a decision I made after rebuilding the engine. All my other cars use regular oil and Napa Gold filters 'cause I get them from work.

I still have a Donaldson filter on my truck and I haven't worked at the place I got'em for almost three years.
