Step 1: remove the valve cover///step 2: if you see nice gold color around the rods, lifters, and valves and you do not see any black sludge in between the lifters the engine is pretty clean and will also tell you if the car religiously has been getting its oil change every 3k. Also start up the car; listen for tapping noises BUT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE VALVE COVER ON. If you dont hear any abnormal tapping noises then your engine is solid. Try to stay away from arco or cheap gasoline. shell, mobil, and CHEVRON is really good gas for the engine.

How to reset change oil soon light


Oil Life Monitor Resetting (KD, KE)
Description
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil and the engine oil filter - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 12 500 km (7,500 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the CHANGE OIL message may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 12 500 km (7,500 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.
The engine oil life monitor will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner if the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message is displayed.
Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed.
Resetting Procedure
Press the INFORMATION SKIP button on the DIC control panel in order to display the OIL LIFE LEFT message.
Press and hold the RESET NO button until the display shows 100% ENGINE OIL LIFE.

NEED TO RESET OIL CHANGE LIGHT


How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Whenever the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where the oil is changed prior to a CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message being turned on, reset the system.
Always reset the engine oil life to 100% after every oil change. It will not reset itself. To reset the Engine Oil Life System:
Display the OIL LIFE REMAINING on the DIC.
Press and hold the SET/RESET button on the DIC for more than five seconds. The oil life will change to 100%.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes back on when the vehicle is started, the Engine Oil Life System has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

I JUST CHANGED THE OIL ON MY 2006 COBALT AND THE READ OUT STILL SHOWS 25% ,MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I RESET THIS .THANKS


Try this and if it does not work let me know.

1. Turn the ignition key to the "Run" position but do not start the engine.

2. Press the display button until the display reads "Oil Life"

3. Press the accelerator (gas) pedal all the way down and all the way back up 3 times within 5 seconds.

4. The oil life index should reset to 100 or the display will read "Oil Life Index Resetting", and when completed then turn off the ignition.

Start the vehicle and verify that the oil life has been reset, and if it did not reset then repeat the procedure, because sometimes it will take more than one try to clear and reset the oil life index.


If that does not work then try this procedure...


1. Press the fuel information button until ENGINE OIL LIFE appears on the Driver Information Center (DIC).

2. Press and hold the select button.

3. The engine oil life percentage will return to 100.

4. Turn the key to OFF.

5. If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset.
Repeat the procedure.

How do i reset the oil life on a 2005 gmc c8500


Most often you need a code reader with a reset function that can connect to the computer jack under the dash and reset factory functions like that. Pain in the tush if you are changing your own oil. Mechanics and dealers have the equipment to do that reset.

Notes ENGINE OIL LIFE SYSTEM

HOW TO RESET THE ENGINE OIL LIFE SYSTEM
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" message being turned on, reset the system.

  1. With the ignition key in "RUN" but the engine off, repeatedly push the trip/reset button until "OIL" is displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC).
  2. Once "OIL" is displayed, push and hold the trip/reset button for five seconds. The number will disappear and be replaced by 100 (indicating 100% oil life remaining).
  3. Turn the key to "OFF". If the "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
If this does not work you may have a problem with your instrument cluster.
