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)
Description
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.

I have a spanner symbol on my 407. what does this mean??


You need to carry out the periodical car service due (e.g. engine oil & filter, air filter, fuel filter, cabin air filter). The "service" spanner symbol "reset" button is placed on the lower right corner of the dashboard. See picture below:

tdisline_303.jpg
Then you should reset the "service" spanner symbol by pressing on the "reset" button on dashboard, when ignition key is in OFF position. Hold the button pressed and turn ignition key in ON position. Hold the button pressed and see on the dashboard successive numbers will appear: "10", "9", "8", ... , "1", "0". Then release the button and switch OFF the ignition key. The "service" spanner symbol followed by "20000 km" (or "30000 km" depending of the engine type), will appear for few seconds after turning ignition key in ON position, and will dissapear after engine starting. The car service due was reseted.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

Oil turn black after travelling for 30 km even after putting the new oil why


do this the oil is turning black due to sludge build up in the motor. change the oil and filter buy 1 quart of rislone come in an quart bottle like oil use this in place of 1 regular quart of oil. drive for about 250 miles then change oil and filter again this will remove all sludge build up in your engine. then your oil will stay clean for a normal interval with out turning black.
i use this in any car i buy and it always works.

Reset change oil light


hello, here is the instructions on how to reset the light

When the system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is necessary. A CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will come on. Change the engine oil as soon as possible within the next 600 miles (1000 km). It is possible that, if driving under the best conditions, the oil life may not indicate that an oil change is necessary for over a year. However, the engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the system must be reset.
If the system is ever reset accidentally, change the engine oil at 3000 miles (5000 km) since last oil change.
To reset the Engine Oil Life System, do the following:
  1. Turn the ignition to ON, with the engine off.
  2. Slowly fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. The reset is complete when the chimes sound and the CHANGE OIL lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on and no chime is heard, repeat the reset procedure.
  4. Turn the key to OFF.
If the CHANGE OIL lamp comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

When I start up truck oil light is on when its warm it turns off.is this a problem just bought it?


It seems the oil pump is weak. Do an oil and filter change now and every 3000-4000 miles useing only good quality oil.I would guess this engine has high miles.
If you want the light to stay out get a new high volume pump.But I would not worry about it.Just keep the oil and filter changed.

How often do I change the oil in my new Lincoln MKX ...every 2000 km or every 5000 km?


The owner's manual calls for changing oil and filter every 7500 miles in normal service, or if driving in dusty conditions, offroad, or lots of low speed and idling (a taxi or maybe an unlucky commuter), go to the extreme service intervals of 5000 miles. Changing oil every 3000 miles is definitely NOT required.

2001 Trooper turbodiesel oil pressure gauge


check oil pressure with test gauge from near large engine oil filter and cooler assembly, to rule out sender unit issue, if same readings check oil pick up sucking air O ring leaking?
releif valves in oil filter cooler assembly, stuck/jamming open?
if vehicle has been sitting for a couple of days and this happens light should only stay on 1-2 seconds go out and then gauge starts reading
have seen this on older higher km vehicles bad ones have balance shaft centre journal in sump worn out (new sump)
