Why when the book says 10,000 miles between synthetic oil changes does the oil change light come on at 5,000?


Hi Sandra, The oil service light in the vehicle has been preset at the factory to 5000 intervals for use with mineral oils. The engine does not know the difference between the oils. Ask your service center if the warning is adjustable for use with synthetic oil. There is no problem (except financial) in changing the oil every 5000 instead of ten, in fact it will help maintain the engine in better condition. Best regards John

Bmw 323 'r' reg e36 engine oil light flashing


your oil pressure switch is a great place to start. since the oil was really thick you could have a horrible oil sludge problem. about 50-100 miles before your next oil change take a bottle of Transmission Fluid and dump in with your oil. and Drive for the remaning 50-100 miles with the Trany fluid still in the oil. The Transmission Fluid is a great Cleaner for sludge.
hope this helped you
