The check engine should go off after several starts but check for oil leaks (filter and pan plug). Also check the oil level for overfill.

Oil warning light keeps coming on


if you don`t hear any engine noise then its more than likely the oil pressure switch is acting up. this is likely a coincidence that it happened after the oil change. have the oil pressure switch replaced.

To reset the "OIL CHANGE" light, remove the cover from the switch located below the speedometer. Insert a blunt object and depress the switch.

When "CHECK ENGINE OIL" is displayed on the Super Monitor, press the "SELECT" button below the display until "ENGINE OIL" mode is displayed (unless it already is displayed). Then press and hold the "SET" button until "OK" is displayed.

On the Mercedes C-240 the oil sencor light came on with the A service oil change .I had the oil changed and now the oil level light comes on. And this is on a 2005 C-240 4-matic .


Could be the person who changed it never ran the motor and then topped it off once the filter was full. Have you checked the oil level after you let the car sit overnight to make sure the oil level is on full? I would say it could be a bad oil level sensor, except that the coincidence of coinciding with an oil change is too obvious.

I have a 97 honda accord se 4 cylinder non-vtec and here recently i have notice it has been eating up gas more than usual what could be the issue?


Assuming your check engine light isnt on, check for low tire pressure, a dirty air filter and check your oil level.

Service engine soon light it on


it could be both but im guessing that you changed the oil before the exact time for it to be done . if so have some one reset the light for you im not sure exactly how to do it on the 03 century if you have the drivers manual it will tell you how to reset it.

Had the oil changed in my chevy aveo now the check engine light is on


It is possibly they accidently left a sensor unplugged when removing the air filter to inspect it, but other than that it could be just pure coincidence.

Open your hood and just take a look for any unplugged sensors. If everything seems OK, id say its just a coincidence. Its pretty hard to mess up an oil change that bad lol

Subaru forester check engine light came on. Found oil low, added oil, check engine light still on. Is this normal? How does the light turn off?


no not nornal,you need to get it plugged in to a diagnostic computer to see which sensor set it off it means you have something that needs to be looked at,low oil could be a coincidence

My check engine light cmae on i only have 49,000 miles and just had an oil change what could that mean


like "instantly" after the oil change? the check engine light could by caused by a LOT of different reasons. recheck anything that could have been touched while doing a oil change, perhaps a sensor or something got disconnected. may by just a coincidence

97 wrangler oil pressure drops when engine is at idle


check the engine oil level... you could possibly need to replace the oil pump soon... if you do not live in a cold climate i would consider using 30 or 50 weight oil. do NOT use that in a cold climate as the oil is like molasses when it gets cold.
that's only temporary. one other thing to consider is a clogged oil filter... when was the last time it was changed ?
