High oil warning ml350

The "oil hi" light is coming on in my 2004 ml350. I have 108000 miles on it. Purchased used about 4 months ago. I had oil changed about 2500 miles ago by Jiffy Lube so if the oil was high, don't you think it would have come on sooner? Also, the day after the oil hi light started coming on, it started making a "whirring" noise that occurs when I am doing about 25 mph or less. It happens in reverse or drive as well as whether or not I am accelerating or decelerating. What could this be?

Check the oil on the dipstick. If it is high, it may be contaminated with gas or coolant. You can smell if it is gas. If it is coolant, it will look milky brown color. That would point to a head gasket problem.

If the oil looks good and not contaminated, but still high, drain enough out the drain plug until oil is at proper level, or just go ahead and drain all the oil so it can be looked at at for contamination. Because if jiffy lube put too much in, you are right, the light should have come on sooner. The whirring noise could very well be from a high oil level, so look into all possibilities. If oil is not too high, it could be just a sensor problem-but it doesn't sound like it. Good luck.

SOURCE: 1996 suburban makes grinding noise in 2 wheel drive

sounds like the clip on the rear output shaft its probably broke. do this by removing the rear driveshaft, and the tail of the transfer case, there are 4 bolts holding it in place. then grab the output shaft and see if it has any front to back movement. if so pull it all the way to the rear and you should see a groove at the front part of the shaft where the clip goes. Then you should find the pieces fo the clip in the tail housing. One person said he found the replacement clip at a local tranny shop. I am calling the dealership parts counter for a new clip for my 97 Tahoe tomorrow. Hope this helps..

SOURCE: Sudden oil leak and engine noise

It looks like you drove your car with no oil in your engine, unfortunately you should have stopped the moment you started to hear the "rapping noise" since you could have severely damaged your engine. If the noise continues even if you have a normal oil reading you most likely would have to overhaul your engine since by driving it oil dry several parts may have resulted damaged.

How to reset a 2012 ML350 A3 service warning


you need to use the diagnostic program too do this step after a full service
ie check and replace brake pads and fuel filters paper filter oil and fluids and filters then reset its ecu

try to ask the local garages who has the right cable and tools and ask them to either do the full service and reset it
or reset it if youve done a service
this only comes on at a major service point or if the ecu detects an issue so is not just a short service
anything from worn pads to bad oil presure can cause this too trigger as well as miles count

White smoke coming out of tail pipe.


WHITE smoke? Or BLUE smoke? White smoke is usually caused by burning antifreeze (possible blown head gasket). Engine oil burning causes a bluish colored smoke.

Changing the oil two months ago means absolutely nothing to me. I have customers that travel 6000 miles or more in a month. Oil consumption is measured in volume over miles, not volume over months. It is normal for most 4 cylinder engines to use a little less than 1/2 quart in 1000 miles (even more than that for 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder engines).

2007 ford 500 oil warning light comes on and just had the oil and filter changed 700 miles ago,62000 mile on car .light comes on when started ,push reset and it goes off and stays off until the next start...


When they changed the oil they did not reset the light. The car needs to be told when the oil is changed.

when the warning comes on press the setup button. it should say press reset if new. Press the reset button. It should say if new oil hold reset. Press and hold the reset button until the display changes to oil life set to 100%.

Going through alternators


Hi there, I am a girl (i.e. not car savvy), but I have a 1998 Altima as well, and the first time (4 months ago) I noticed the brake and battery lights on simultaneously, I took it to a Nissan service shop. Everything seemed fine until about a month ago when the symptoms returned. I ignored the problem for 3 days and the car just stopped running, period. Took it back to the shop, figured out it was a fauly alternator, got it sorted, no problem. Today (1 month after replacement), I see the same bloody problem, and I'm taking it back to the shop in the morning. I am wondering... is it the alternator, or something connected to the alternator that is malfunctioning? The 2 alternators put in were "rebuilt" since they didn't have genuine Nissan alternators available. I really hope the dealers aren't taking me for a merry ride.

2006 F-150 w/5.4 was 4 quarts low on oil...No warnings on dash..oil was changed around 5000 miles ago checked it about 1week ago was fine...any solutions


First off, dont rely on on-dash warning lights,if vehicle has an oil gauge,check it upon startup,then again at operating temperature.If vehicle does NOT have an oil gauge, this is a relatively inexpensive part that you can install that will save you untold time,MONEY,worry,and problems.... WELL worth the money....did you subject yourvehicle to any high stress situations [towing,etc.]during the oil loss period? how long a period of time/mileage for the oil loss?Have you performed a compression check on the cylinders? Worn oil rings? How many miles on vehicle?

Same dillema, how do I reset the Service B message in a MB ML350?


If you are turning in the vehicle in 3 months I wouldn't worry about changing the oil. In the old days, they use to say change it every 6,000 miles and then as a way to make more money, they started saying every 3,000 miles. But if you really want to reset your computer, unplug your negative cable from your battery terminal and leave it off for five minutes. On a mercedes, they are very advanced piece of work, but doing this may give you another message regarding losing power, so do this at your own risk.

Missing oil


very common problem you are burning oil. the piston rings, that nissan used are the problem. We see quite a few of the 3.5 liter engines loosing oil due to piston ring problem. nissan sais that 1qt. per 3500 miles is exceptable, but who want a vehicle that burns oil?? not me. good luck with that.
