Changing oil dependent on how you drive or operate a car ---- some sources say every 3000 miles, auto manufacturers actually base it at 5000 to 7000 miles. The best rule of thumb I can suggest is to approach oil changing like washing your hands ---- when it starts looking dirty. for you this could be less than 500 miles if your car is started and stopped frequently or you have a lot of blowby at the piston rings, or it could be as much as 10,000 miles if you are doing hi-way driving-using synthetic oil-using top filter like K&N etc

You can go 7,000 miles between changes under normal conditions,if you live in a dusty area or do a lot of stop and go driving 3,000 to 4,500 between changes.

I have a 2005 Colorado & this is how to turn off the Oil Change display.
1) Turn key to on position. Do not start.
2) Pump accelerator pedal 3 times.
3) 5 beeps will occur which resets display.
I just did it & it worked.

SOURCE: 2003 Impala: HOW DO I CHANGE BATTERY 2005 CHEVROLET IMPALA...

The battery is under the hood, just behind the passenger headlight.
There is a black bar that crosses over the battery and goes back towards strut tower. Remove this bar and the three bolts; probably a 12 or 13mm socket.
Remove the negative (black) battery cable with an 8mm socket or wrench. A 5/16" should work also.
Then remove the positive (red) cable with same socket.
Remove the battery clamp and bolt. Probably a 12mm socket with extension.
It's tight, but the battery can be removed.
Reverse instructions for installing the battery. (That includes hooking up the red battery cable first, then the black cable.)

SOURCE: My 2005 chev Impala blower motor does not run,

Are you check other fuse/relays in the fuse box? Check this link to know wheere is located and description fuses: 2005 Chevrolet Impala Owners Manual (page 341 and next)

With the engine running, take the blower motor connector off and test for power at the purple wire and run a new ground wire from the resistor to a body ground and see what happens. Other posibilitie, most likely it is the "blower resistor processor", this is very common on GM cars.

To test this, at the blower motor control module, check the Red wire for 12 volts all the time. If there is no voltage, check the HVAC blower fuse on fuse box to see if the fuse is blown. Make sure the Black wire pin A is a good chassis ground. Back probe the Gray/Black wire and check for voltage to vary from roughly 2-8 volts as blower speed is changed. If all of these are ok, then replace the blower module.

Hope helps.

Lifter noise when on start up then goes away after few minutes


These engines did make a little rattle when first cranked. Are you running an ac/delco filter? i have seen a lot of engines make noise from cheap oil filters. they will let all the oil drain out so when you start it has to fill the filter back up before getting oil to engine

Reset oil change


TURN IGNITION KEY TO ON POSITION THEN BACK TO OFF 3 TIMES 3RD TIME LEAVE IT IN ON POSITON THEN DEPRESS GAS PETAL TO FLOOR 3 TIMES. TURN KEY OFF SHOULD BE RESET

Push the next button on the radio until you see the word reset then push the tune nob again. this will reset the oil timer on the car and change oil light should turn off.
