How do i turn off the change oil soon light on a 2001 buick lesabre


Instructions
    • 1 Turn your key to the last ignition position (as far as the key will go without starting the engine).
    • 2 Examine the area to the left of your steering wheel to find your DIC control panel. Look closely at the buttons to get comfortable with them.
    • 3 Press the button labeled "Gage Info" several times, until the display screen shows "Oil Life Index".
    • 4 Press and hold the button labeled "Reset" for six seconds. Turn the key back to "Off", and then remove it from the ignition.
    • 5 Re-insert the key and start the engine. The oil life index will be reset; the light will be turned off.

I have a 2006 chevy equinox and when i started it it had a quiet tick which was a completely new development. As I drove it became very loud so we pulled over turned it off...started it again after a coupld minutes it started but noise was still there, checked the oil it read low so we added two quarts then it wouldn't start meanwhile no smoke showed no burning smell didn't overheat and now lights came on.

Engine oil pressure light came on. I checked oil levels and added 1/2 ltr. Light went out and didn't come back on. tune up to be done on Tuesday next week. I suspect it might be the oil filter. Should...


If your oil level is full, light is off and no abnormal engine noises, if should be ok to drive to the shop. If light does come on, stop the engine. I would also have the shop check your oil pressure with a manual gauge, to determine the exact oil pressure reading. This could save you from major engine failure due to low oil pressure. I hope this helps.

Where is it located and what does the oil sending unit do?


Your oil sending unit is located somewhre on the engine. It will be round and about 1 to 1.5 inch across. It will have a wire attached to the top of it. I dont know the specific location on your particular car.

What does it do? It is a diaphram operated device that sends a signal to your oil gage or warning light. The engine side is exposed to oil pressure in the engine. The oil presses against the diaphram. The diaphram is attached to a variable resistor device that operates the gage. Low pressure on the diaphram -= low signal to the gage; Hight pressure on the diaphram = high signal to the gage.

Does this answer your question?

Engine makes a rapping noise at idle and under throttle.


The rapping noise makes me think that it might be a broken belt or even the lifters. It could be even your fan. Check the blades to se if they are bent or broken.

All fluids, tires, etc, checked out.


The check engine light doesn't monitor those things, it's an emissions warning. monitors a host of things that are emissions related. You need to have it checked by a technician. The most common cause is a loose (or defective) gas cap. Make sure it clicks when you fill up. As for being 1/4 qt low on oil, don't add that small of an amount. Only add if it's a full quart low. If you check it soon after the engine has been running it'll show low because there's still a lot of oil upstairs in the engine. The dipstick measures what's down low in the oil pan. Also don't add anything to the radiator; only add to the overflow jar. It's marked high and low; those are actually temperature dependent marks, it should be at the high mark when the engine is warm and low when the engine is cold. Coolant expands and contracts with temperature. Don't add straight H2O either; that should be 50-50 coolant/water. They'll do that when you get the oil changed.

Steering warning light on 2005 suzuki reno


Speed Sensitive Power Steering
(SSPS) Warning Light
If your vehicle has Speed Sensitive Power
Steering (SSPS), this warning light will
come on briefly when you turn the ignition
to ON as a check to show you the bulb is
working.
Then it should go out after a few seconds.
If the warning light does not come on, have
it fixed so it will be able to warn you if there
is a problem.
If the warning light stays on, or comes on
while you are driving, the SSPS system
may not be working. If this happens, see
your SUZUKI dealer for service.
