Hi If I was you I would take it back to where you had car servised from,and get them to reset service idicater as these normerly need to be reset by some one with a electronic tool.hope this was some help,If you did oil change yourselve then you can buy the tool on e-bay under diagnostic tools good luck.
Hi. The oil service light in red indicates that the vehicle is over due for a vehicle service..OIL SERVICE.. If you don't have it done, it could all go wrong. Have the light reset after Service and then it will monitor for your next service.bye for now.
Perform service indicator warning is a heads up that another oil change is needed. Your vehicles computer calculates a duty cycle for service intervals; Driving distance, stop and go etc... Change the engine oil, and reset the alert, and you'll be fine.
By having it scanned and cleared with an OBD tool. This light comes on when it detects a problem. Could be a bad gas cap, or it could be a misfiring engine. The code you get from having it scanned will pinpoint the trouble area
I also have a 2001 SLK 320 with same issue. It is definitely a lifter problem due to the fact that it is occasional. Also, if a coil were bad then it would trigger an engine code ('check engine' light), plus it would run rough for longer. Try some oil treatment first, if that does not work for you then you'd have to replace the lifters. Honestly, it's a lot of work. I am not sure if I am going to keep it or not. I honestly absolutely love my car but I just don't know now.
Hi Mike, I'm in the U.K. and your Quarts are of a different measure to ours, I would say that is about the right amount, however careful topping up on level ground and monitoring the dip stick should get you there? anyhow where you bought the oil will have capacity details. As for oil service light have you tried holding down the trip reset button whilst turning on ignition? Keep it pressed for about 10/15 seconds. Good Luck! Press the Blue button please if helped by my FREE Effort, Thank You! Paul 'W' U.K.
If you have the Driver information Center then you just select engine life cycle and hold down set button, otherwise You turn the igniton on, pump the pedal 3 times within 5 seconds, the change oil light should start flashing indicating it has been reset.
