How's the motor look around the valve covers,just because the oil light comes on doesn't mean the only problem is low oil,could mean low oil pressure,which is caused by many reasons.

Check both the oil filter and drain plug for leaks.

SOURCE: i can;t reset the change

This procedure work for one 2004... press mode button until oil life or change oil or change oil now is displayed press and hold mode button for 5 seconds until reset for new oil is displayed then hold reset for 2 seconds.

Additionally, I quite other comments about this subject....

Few issues have troubled technicians more than the infamous "Change oil soon light." We have even had quick lube shops send customers to me at the dealership to shut off this light.
Yes, the engineer that designed this system most certainly had flunked out of the "User Friendly" semester of college. The most common problem is between step 1 and 2 of the owner's manual. The natural tendency is that when we scroll through the menu to the "oil life XX%" mode, we lift our finger. This is where most go wrong. Once the "oil life XX%" comes up on the menu, do NOT lift from depressing the button- just hold for 5 seconds until the "Reset for new oil life" comes up. Again, do not lift your finger.

The parking assist is a different concern altogether. The parking assist light illuminated when it is deactivated- opposite of what seems logical. It was probably the same design engineer as the oil change system. If the system is disabled, (illuminated) it is intended to cycle back when the key is shut off.

Hope helps.

No oil on dip stick


2000 lincoln town car holds 6 1/2 to 7 quarts of oil. If oil was changed and only 5 was put in will not show enough. If oil was not changed you have a leak or burning it.

Hi I've got 2door rav4 1995 model. Its got a dip stick at the bottom of the engine. I was wondering what is that for coz my rav4 is leaking oil and that dip stick is giving me low in oil. Hope you can...


The dipstick shows your engine oil level. If it is low, add oil to the engine by locating the oil cap. Usually has the word oil on it or "Engine Oil for Gasoline Engines) on it. As for the oil leak, try and locate it as soon as possible.

When do I add Oil?


Really you should not have to add oil. But to find out have jeep on level surface and use the dip stick to check. Check with car off, pull dip stick out and wipe off and reinsert, Pull back out and read the stick only add if it is low. Do not over fill.
