To reset your check oil light after you change the oil, turn the key to the start position on the ignition. Don't crank the car. When the radio and lights come on, pat the accelerator 3 times. You'll then see the check oil light blink 3 times and then go off.

This just started last week; I changed the oil & filter today cause previous owner said it did that to him when he was late changing the oil/filter. When I backed into my drive, the light went out

Feels like walking into a conversation, but missing the first few paragraphs...

"This just started". Unfortunately, we don't know what "this" actually is, nor what light went out.

You did check the oil level, right?

Check engine light came on, last time it needed oil and went out , this time checked oil and half way up to full, would the light still come on possibly even if not as low as before and just need oil...

check engine light illuminates due to a multiple array of problems- such as emissions, temperature, fuel...etc. when the light comes on it means the computer sees a problem and puts out a code that needs to be read by a code reader. usually at a dealer/auto shop.

I see this all the time! That's what happens when the oil is not changed regularly. If your oil light is still coming on, it is because there is severe damage to the engine bearings, connecting rods, valve lifters, cylinder walls and probably the crankshaft and camshaft. That is pretty much the WHOLE engine. Your only choices are:
> Replace it with a new/remanufactured engine (this choice will come with the best warranty, but you'll pay for it).
> Replace it with a used engine (cross your fingers and pray you get a good one - hopefully, one that has been properly maintained and isn't nearly as bad as the one you are replacing).
> Remove your engine, overhaul it, and put it back in (very time-consuming and usually has very little warranty).
> Sell the car "AS-IS" or trade it in on a new car. (you probably won't get much unless you sell the car NOW while the engine still runs).

I have customers that continually go WAY overdue for their oil changes. They use excuses like "I didn't have the time" or "I just couldn't afford to get the oil changed". I try to warn them of the possibilities. I tell them that they cannot afford to NOT change the oil, but they just ignore my efforts and come back way overdue the next time. I should refer them to you!

When was the last time you had a tune up? That would include oil and air filter, spark plugs and etc. Also, you may need to have your timing belt replace. You should check your owner's manual for routine scheduled maintenance.

if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.

Burning oil, but dont know why

Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.
