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

When to engine change oil


depend on the age of the vehicle
new vehicle manufacturers recommend an oil change at 12 months but it is disputable requirement as there are additives in the oil that are neutralized over time and stop being effective in the oil operation

If you stick to an oil change every 5,000miles or 3 months , 10,000 klm or 6 months with a oil filter change at the same time , you will be doing good for he engine
Heavy dusty work or high speed work or low .short runs will require an earlier oil change

Should I change automatic transmission oil on my 2004 kia sedona?


forget the friends advice
automatic oil should be light tan or cherry red depending on the brand of oil used
the oil should be changed around the 60,000 klm mark and done by accredited transmission shops
If you have a CV-transmission that requires a special oil (not auto transmission oil as they are not automatic transmissions --they have a belt running between variable pulleys which gives the impression that it is automatic but it is not)

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.

Automatic gearbox warning. Limited performance warning on Automatic transmission, one day it lights up the next day it does not. It says to contact service. Everything though is working fine, does it need...


always treat a warning message as serious and have it check at an accredited service center
could be that the oil needs replacing, a problem sensor or wiring or clutch/band adjustment
although there are manufacturers that say the oil never needs changing(GM for example), transmission oil suffers from extreme temperatures and loads and these factors cause oxidation of the oil (burning ) that requires the oil to be changed on a regular basis (60,000-100,000 miles or 100,000 klm

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.

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..
