I just bough an Oldsmobile silhouette 1999 and I would like to know what kind of service it needs, I mean oil change etc.


oil changes should be done about 2,000 miles(5,000 kil),tune-ups about 50-60,000 kil,tranny service about every 80,000kil,if you go to a library you should be able to get a book for your vehicle that will have service intervals in it that you can copy.

Service vehicle soon light came on, but I should not need service. Oil recently changed, brake work done, car running fine. Thanks


This is a warning from the computer to let you know that one or more of the many sensors monitoring the systems in the vehicle has a problem. With the light on, take it to Auto Zone, NAPA or Schucks to have them attach their code reader to determine what the problem actually is. They will usually offer this service for free as they want you to purchase the needed parts from them to fix the problem if you do the work yourself. If not your mechanic can resolve the issue. Many times the problem is simply an O2 sensor needs replaced. Good luck to you

How do you reset change oil light on mitsubishi outlander


Turn the key off.

Press the "Info" button on the left of the dash cluster until your maintenance miles/months screen is displayed.

Press and hold the "info" button until the maintenance screen begins flashing.

Release the "info" button and then push and hold it it for one second.

Your Maintenance intervals should reset to +6 months and +7500 miles since the last interval amount.

Note that if you have not reset it for more than one interval, you may need to do it more than once. If you have not done it for many intervals, you may need to have it reset with the scantool at a dealer, as I have run into a handful of vehicles that the oil change reminder locked up after 3-4 "intervals" were skipped/not reset.

How reset service interval light (already changed oil, oil filter, etc)


the service interval "light " has nothing to do with emissions or a problem with the car . There is a rectangle slot on the dash cluster you just use your key and press it and it just resets the counter

Oil Change Reset
A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
“OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage perform the following procedure:
1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
OIL LIFE AT XXX%.”
2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
40% and 30%.
