Not 100% sure what you're asking. But if you have a modern car with maintenance schedules programmed into the ecm (engine control module), the oil change or maintenance required light will click on when the computer senses the odometer has registered the pre designated amount of miles. Theirs usually a process to clear these lights after the maintenance has been performed. Simply changing the oil and filter does not make the light go away. Typically the process consists of holding in the odometer trip switch (the button on the face of the gauges) while you cycle the key to the on (not the start) position and hold in the button for about ten seconds or so. Your owners manual will include the specific steps you should take.
Oil Life Monitor Resetting (KD, KE)
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil and the engine oil filter - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 12 500 km (7,500 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the CHANGE OIL message may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 12 500 km (7,500 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.
The engine oil life monitor will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner if the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message is displayed.
Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed.
Press the INFORMATION SKIP button on the DIC control panel in order to display the OIL LIFE LEFT message.
Press and hold the RESET NO button until the display shows 100% ENGINE OIL LIFE.

most likely plugs or wires (Do both at the same time best bet) Your engine has a certain load a certain speeds, if your ignition system (plugs + wires) arent up to snuff, they will misfire at certain speeds only. I would recomend it 1st, other than that there are a couple of things that do it, but that is most likely. Shop around for ignition parts dilligently, its a very cutthroat market and prices vary greatly, make sure you only buy platinum plugs or better.
