Consult your owners manual on how to reset the oil life reminder light. I dont remember ecaxtly how it is done, i think 1 way is to turn the headlights on and off 3 times with the ignition on, engine off. The other is accessing the on-board computer through your factory radio: ignition on, engine off, press display buttom for a few secs till it beeps and displays options, scroll using the seek buttons, select with the preset 1+2 buttoms to reset when u get to "oil life monitor'. Its really easy check ur owner's manual. Good Luck

How often should I change my 454's oil?

Go with the schedule oil change as listed in the hand book. Otherwise 10.000 klm or 6 months . Change at 5000klm if difficult conditions. Type of oil Conditions dictate if you use a multi grade 10/15w- 20/30/40/50 grade oil Again check the hand book Mineral oil will do just a good a job as the more expensive synthentic types As to brands that is you choice.

How often should i change the oil in my 2005 nissan maxima sl?

Typically you should change the oil and filter in your car every 10,000 klm, depending on the terrain you are driving in, example: gravel or dusty roads you should change your oil + filter, and clean out your air filter every 5,000klm.

Maint required light just came on .....2008 toyota this a bad sign or a minimal problem

The maintenance required light lets you know its time for an oil change. Once the oil is changed the light can be reset. The light will usually blink for a few seconds as you approach the 5,000 mile mark and then stay on steady as the 5,000 mile mark is reached or surpassed.

Why does my maintenance required light flashes 6 times after starting my 2005 toyota corolla?

its to let you know that its almost time to change your oil. it will stay on when the car has reached 5000 miles since your last oil change or since the light was last reset.

Maintenance Required Indicator is RED. I tried resetting this but it still stays red. I have resetted this before and it would turn green. But this time it stays red. What does that light indicate anyway?...

yes, this is an indication that is instructing you to change the oil. the constancy of the oil is thinning. these Hondas have a very sophisticated oil system sensory module. it will tell you if the oil is to thin. very cool system.

Oil light

it may just be time to change your oil pump.. start your engine and lift your hood.. do you hear a tapping type sound? the impeller inside your pump may be work and thus taking alotl longer then normal to build the proper pressure... if this is true.. get changed ASAP... if it fails it could cause your engine to blow..
