The 10-30 oil should not cause a problem. You might want to get an experienced mechanic to check the noise to make sure it is nothing bad. In the meantime always give your van regular oil changes. That is the best thing you can do to maintain your vehicle.

SOURCE: strange beeping noise

I read on another site that if the indicator on the dash is malfunctioning and there's a fault code in the system, the beeping is a secondary indication that there's a need for service. I've had my air bag light blinking for some time now. Yesterday my gauges went out, Oil Pressure, Gas Level, Temp Level, and the Battery Charging Meter, all went dead. After starting the vehicle, it beeps 5 sets of 5 beeps. Since the dash obviously has problems, (Including the Air Bag blinking thing not working), the beeps I now hear are what you are experiencing. However, if you still see the air bag light blinking, maybe your situation is a bit different than mine.

2009 cx-7 has oil leak but oil is full??drives fine no smell has 113,000 mile on it and never a problem


Have the engine cleaned top and bottom with a pressure washer and once that is done drive the car about 10 miles return to the shop and check for the oil leak source, common placed for leaks are valve covers, rear main seals and the oil pressure sensor. It is best that you have access to a car lift.

Absolutely not. Most modern cars have an extended oil change interval. Usually 7500 miles.. Some of them calculate the interval. Now.. If the price is right. I would't worry too much about this. but in the future change the oil according to the manual.

If the oil change warning was not reset at the previous oil change it's letting you know about the 5,000 required change, and it will continue to chime until reset. See your manual or dealer for reset instructions.
