Oil change but Oil light continues to blink

I've changed my oil a week ago, but a couple of the days later my oil light came back on. Is it because i'm not putting enough oil in my car, I'm putting too much oil, or do i have a leak?

SOURCE: oil change

Add three quarts and then check the oil dip stick..if it is still low then slowly add a fourth quart and check it again...most cars don't use more then four quarts of oil (some use five quarts)

SOURCE: oil light comes on. Just got oil change. Is oil

Most likely POOR OIL PRESSURE. DO NOT run theengine till you connect with the shop that changed the oil. Could be many possibilities i.e. wrong oil, bad filter, not enough oil . Hope this helps

SOURCE: Oil change light

Look up the light on the part of your owners manual that explains what each idiot light is for on your dash. That should give you a page where more information on it is available. Part of that section should state that if maintenance is done by someone other then your Mercury dealer, then do the following to reset the light. That should take care of ya.

Good Luck

Oil change but oil continues to blink


Simple check first. Check your oil and make sure it is reading correctly on the dipstick. If it is low then add oil and watch everyday to see if the oil drops. If it is dropping quick enough to notice in a day or two then you have a leak somewhere an need to find that. A pressure test may need to be done as well to make sure oil pressure is high enough.

I can smell burning oil smell inside my car sometimes when i turn the heat on.and the engine light also came on couple of days after. i jus changed the oil and filters 3 weeks ago. can someone please


depending on the type of car, you might have oil leaking directly onto the exhaust system, which is dangerous as it could possibly ignite. I would take it back to the oil change place and have them double check the oil filter to make sure the seal isn't leaking. AutoZone or Advance Auto can hook a mini scan tool to the car and tell you why the light is on.

2005 mazda 3 2.3l that is burning oil (no leaks)


possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Yellow check engine light on after having oil change and splash guard tied back on


Could be a number of things. Should still be under 3/36000 warranty. Take it to the dealership. If the place you got your oil change from used the wrong weight oil, this could cause the light to come on. There are thousands of possibilities, which is why you need a computer to check them now.

Burning oil, but dont know why


Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.
