Engine oil lamp some times blinks comes on and later when restart it does not come I have Kia Sorento 2009


The oil light will come on when ever pressure is low it ct can be as little as the oil pressure sensor is going out or you may have a blockage somewhere in the oil system try doing an oil change with mobile1 oil this may help if there is a small blockage but defiantly get the sensor checked first

I have a 2001 GMC Jimmy and the motor is rattling whenever I excelerate. It has 116,000 miles on it and I have the oil changed every 3000 miles. What could be wrong?


Thanks for choosing FixYa. You may have an issue with your motor mounts or the suspension on your Jimmy, thus causing the engine to rattle. If it is only doing this during acceleration, it could be a few different things. Since you have 116,000 miles, you are in need of a tune up, if you haven't already. You may need to change your fuel filter or injectors. If the engine is not getting enough gas to the engine, it can cause the engine to miss, causing noises. You will need to check the fuel pressure to determine that though. As far as the tune up, you may need new spark plugs/coils, and wires. There may be internal engine damage but I think it is something simple. If your check engine light is on, you could take it to Autozone and have it scanned. They do it for free and they can tell you why the light is on. This is the best path because you are not guessing what it is. If no light is on, and you haven't changed any of these parts, I would start there. If you have any other questions, just let me know. Thanks for using FixYa and have a great day.

Reset oil change milage


GM OIL LIFE SYSTEM - RESETTING
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 16 000 km (10,000 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the "CHANGE OIL SOON" light may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 16 000 km (10,000 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.

Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed, use the following procedure:
  1. Turn the ignition key to the RUN position.
  2. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. If the Change Oil Soon light flashes, the system is resetting.
  4. Start the vehicle.
  5. The oil life will change to 100%.
  6. If the Change Oil Soon light comes back on, the system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

Reset change oil light


hello, here is the instructions on how to reset the light

When the system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is necessary. A CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will come on. Change the engine oil as soon as possible within the next 600 miles (1000 km). It is possible that, if driving under the best conditions, the oil life may not indicate that an oil change is necessary for over a year. However, the engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the system must be reset.
If the system is ever reset accidentally, change the engine oil at 3000 miles (5000 km) since last oil change.
To reset the Engine Oil Life System, do the following:
  1. Turn the ignition to ON, with the engine off.
  2. Slowly fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. The reset is complete when the chimes sound and the CHANGE OIL lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on and no chime is heard, repeat the reset procedure.
  4. Turn the key to OFF.
If the CHANGE OIL lamp comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

Changing engine oil every 5000 KM or every 2500?


The service duration is affected by many things.. If you are driving in a dusty atmosphere or doing a lot of high RPM but low gear driving, change the oil every 2500kms. if you do mainly highway driving with low rpm but top gear, change the oil every 5000 kms. As a rule, I always replace the oil filter at every oil change even though toyota says you dont have to.

How do I reset "Service Engine Soon" indicator light in the instrument cluster on my 1999 GMC Jimmy?(I am an auto mechamic and already change the motor oil)


If you’re not interested in diagnosing your car, truck, or SUV Check Engine Light, or it’s already fixed, and you just want the engine light out, visit an auto repair store.

Most stores will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds and is usually free..
