There should be a small hole on the instrument cluster with a small plastic cap, remove the cap and push a paperclip into the hole as far as is possible, this will reset your service light which comes on at 3K intervals.

you are going to have to plug in a diagnostic reader and find out what the problem is or to shut off the light . You could also drive it for 300KM and it should reset itself

Don't normally 'check' these filter, just have them changed, 5 years is a long time, should be changed at regular intervals, blockage in the oil filter will damage the engine and a dirty fuel filter can lower engine performance and cause a breakdown. Get them changed, as soon as. Good luck

Volvo 2006-i WAS driving it and for about week or two only for a second check oil light came on with really sharp turns and thats it. When i finally checked it the stick thing didnt register. Car is fine...


Yes, When you run an engine low on oil enough to cause the light to come on then damage is being done. It sounds like you caught it just in time. I would change the oil and filter for shure as soon as possible. Then I would Change them again In a week or two. Then you should be OK.

Change oil, oil filter & air filter for 2000 Saturn LW


That car should use 5W30 oil, check on the filler cap, or owners manual. If you are in freezing weather, use a synthetic oil. The Change oil light is reset by turning the key on, then depressing the gas pedal to the floor 3 times. The Check Engine light is another subject and a repair shop will need to diagnose and recommend repairs. If it has a 3.0 V6 its not that user friendly. the Cadillac Catera uses that engine.

Check Engine Light - 2000 Honda Accord


it could be that the air filter housing is worn and thats why they said you needed a new one what that means is that you are getting to much air into the engine and will cause check engine light to come on i would replace that and then see if it goes off and then if not go to a auto zone and they check the light and see what it is and then go from there

2001 cheve venture (service engine soon) trouble light on


If ou fixed whatever happened during the oil change, the light will cycle off after about 3 drive cycles.

The check enine light just tells you that you are not meeting emissions right now. Only be concerned if it's flashing. That means you are sending unburned fuel to your catalytic converter whih will overheat and self destruct.

Look for a vacuum hose disconnected and check all the onnections to sensors such as, vehcile speed control sensor, mass air flow sensor, crankshaft position sensor, camshaft poition sensor, throttle position sensor, etc. Good luck.
