oil life. 100% means you just changed oil. 0% means the oil is worn. the computer tells you when to change oil based on hours run speed acceleration and engine temp. Id change mine when it says 10% because at 0% the oil is toast. when you change the oil you need to reset the cluster so it reads 100% most lube places do this for you. if not read the manual it tells you how to reset
If you smell burning oil, you may have a leak in the engine compartment reaching the exhaust manifold and burning on contact. The most common cause for that is leaking valve cover gaskets. If you are losing oil with NO signs of external leaks, the engine may be burning it internally. Valve stem oil seals, worn piston rings, blown/leaking head gasket are a few causes of that.
Yes, most likely it is a defective oil pressure sending unit. However, oil pressure is something you do not want to take chances with. Have it checked with a manual gauge to determine the problem as soon as possible to avoid possible major engine failure. I hope this helps.
it depends........ if you have controls on the steering wheel or not. If you do, then go through the menu until you see OIL LIFE then hold in the reset button (looks like a backwards "L" with an arrow on it). Hold the reset button in until it reads OIL LIFE RESET or OIL LIFE 100%. If you don't have controls on the steering wheel, turn key on (engine off) and depress the gas pedal to the floor 3 times, now turn key off. crank engine up and see that it has reset, if not try it again.
What do you mean? changing the oil life.You change your oil by removing the plug on the bottom of the engine,let it all come out, drain.Replace the plug,then refill through the top of the engine.Fill with the right amount of fluid.
If it is anything like the 2003 you turn your car to the on position without running the engine, tap the accelerator 3 times very quickly in less than 5 minutes. This should reset your back to 0 for your next oil change.
