SOURCE: change oil light

Engine Off, Key to Run position, depress and release gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.

Only do this after changing the oil. Don't worry so much about 3,000 miles, the silverado will calculate when to change your oil next based on miles and driving conditions. -This only works if you only reset the oil light soon after changing the oil.

I have a 2002 Impala and to reset my change engine oil light I turn the ignition on to setting right before actually starting the car and I press my gas all the way down three times within 5 seconds and that usally turns it off. Usually it works

SOURCE: jumps when it changes gears

my guess is that it might be a mount bad and your feeling it jump in the housing of the mount. its also possible that there is a computer malfunction but its not common. my last educated guess is that there is a mechanical problem in the transmission. but it the clutches are not slipping and you don't hear any noises and the fluid is at the right level then it doesn't sound likely. its hard for me to tell exactly without me being able to be there and diagnose it. try sitting in park and holding the brake. shift from drive to reverse and back again to see if it feels like its jerking into gear. if so i would really check for a bad mount. i work a little on rear wheel drive transmissions. but don't have much experience in front wheel drive ones. but they are similar. hope this helps. texastbone

the oil light comes on every 3,000 miles or so as set by the dealer. It doesn't actually 'check' your oil. So your oil changes are probably not going to coincide with the change oil light. So you will have to reset the light on your own. The solution above is what the manual says to do, however, my venture is temperamental, and I have found that I have to press on my accelorator 5-6 times before it will reset the light.

The battery is under the hood, just behind the passenger headlight.
There is a black bar that crosses over the battery and goes back towards strut tower. Remove this bar and the three bolts; probably a 12 or 13mm socket.
Remove the negative (black) battery cable with an 8mm socket or wrench. A 5/16" should work also.
Then remove the positive (red) cable with same socket.
Remove the battery clamp and bolt. Probably a 12mm socket with extension.
It's tight, but the battery can be removed.
Reverse instructions for installing the battery. (That includes hooking up the red battery cable first, then the black cable.)

What does a major tune up for a 2004 chevy impala consist of? What should be done and needs to be done?

New spark plugs, oil and oil filter, transmission flush and fill, fuel filter, air filter, coolant flush and fill, clean throttle body plate and bore, clean the MAF sensor, replace any loose or cracked vacuum lines, PCV valve, new air filter, new battery.

99% of the time all you should ever need for a tune up is new spark plugs, and a clean air filter and throttle body. But since your inquiry indicated "major" I gave it more critical thought.

Low to no oil in 2002 Impala. No even 3000 miles.

If you are close to 3000 miles, change oil. Low oil will overheat and change chemically. While under there, take a look around and see where or if oil is leaking anywhere (should not be hard to find) After changing, run and check again while running. Providing you aren't getting a lot of smoke out the back, (burning it) likely you will find a leak, then fix it!
good luck

I just changed the oil in my 2002 Impala LS and filled the tires to the proper psi but the message center still reads both messages.....change engine oil..........tire pressure low. What do I need to do to...

ok this can be done 2 different ways 1 , with the radio controls , should be in the owners manual , or the easier way , to reset the oil maintinence light , turn the key to the ON position , engine OFF , depress the gas pedal to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds and it will reset ,

now the tire monitor system , same deal should be in the owners manual , and done with the radio controls , or the easier way , turn key to ON position , engine OFF , cycle the parking lights 3 times within 5 seconds , (turn on - turn off = 1 cycle)

pretty cool huh? but make sure your tires were properly inflated before you reset the tire monitoring system .

Its part of a sensor, what you need to do is look in your owners manual under "fuses" and turn to the page, then it will show u what fuse means what and somewhere around that should be the "how to" section...look up on how to turn off your oil light, there will be a sequence you have to follow tho, you can't just hit the button and it will turn try that cause i remember the same thing happened to me with my alero and thats what i had to do...

Reset oil change


On my 2005 impala you turn the ignition on and turn the radio off. Push down the tune nob until settings is displayed on the radio. Push the seek button until you see oil life. Push the next button on the radio until you see the word reset then push the tune nob again. this will reset the oil timer on the car and change oil light should turn off.
