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!

My mercedes Benz cls 500 has service D due... Does that mean it needs an oil change? because i gave it an oil change about 10,000 miles ago


Mercedes uses a service schedule with the letters A-H to denote the relevent maintenance recommended.A is the basic oil service and H is the most inclusive.The intermediate letters correspond to proportional services.The service light should be reset at the completion of the service.This can be done via interface or using the controls and menus on the steering wheel.The specific format for resetting is different for different years and models.Alldata is fairly accurate for reset guidelines,but is not correct on some.Make sure to use synthetic oil in all newer MB,especially with extended oil change intervals.

Hello today i leaded out my Chevy Suburban truck to my sister she returned to me with the Service Engine Soon light on ?? Im sure she ran the truck up hill ? What might the problem be it was perfect this...


She didn't do anything wrong at all. Your truck is just fine and doing what it was designed to do. That's a normal indicator that comes on to remind you to get the oil changed. It's supposed to get reset every time the oil gets changed and frequently, Quickie Lube and other instant oil change shops will overlook resetting it. Look in your owners manual under "Resetting the Service Engine indicator light" and you can reset it yourself. Or just get the oil changed and tell them to make sure and reset it.

What does it mean when the dashboard reads gear indicator fault, service ride control and change oil soon even after i just got it changed along with service vehicle thats what keeps popping up on my dash...


Off the top of my head the following may be the case for your 1995 Cadillac Deville based on my 1997 Cadillac Deville knowledge:

gear indicator fault- has to do with the shift lever sensor down on the column by the feet,

service ride control- has to do with the air ride shocks in the back or the compressor in the front or the ride control height,

change oil soon- has to do with not resetting the % oil life (just press reset button for a few seconds when the oil % life is displayed)

Hope this helps you out.

Just had oil change done on my 2000 alero now my service engine soon light is on.I want to know what this means


It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.
