Your "Oil Life Monitor" needs to be reset.
Turn ignition on, engine OFF.
Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal slowly 3 times within 5 seconds.
If CHANGE OIL indicator flashes, the system is resetting.
After indicator stops flashing, turn key off, then start vehicle. If light stays off, you are done. If it comes back on, repeat the entire procedure.
**Note** Oil life monitor should be reset, whenever you change your oil and filter.

Oil change light comes on when car first started. It goes out after vehicle running for a few minutes. Happens even immediately after oil change.


Keith, it might just need reset. You can go to Autozone and ask for a OBll test and they will check it for free.

How minny quarts of oil dose a 96 olds aurora hold


A typical automobile holds 4-5 quarts of oil.....Depends on the size of motor. If changing yourself, Drain out all oil, change filter, put oil plug back in. Put 3- 31/2 quarts back into car. put oil cap on and start car. Let run for 2-3 minutes then shut back off. Wait for a few. Pull out dipstick wipe, put back in then pull out a second time...Now you know how much you need to top off level.

Oil lite came on right after oil pan gasket


Hi. This issue has several causes, but the oil light indicator is a strong sign of low pressure in the engine. This will cause the engine lubrication rate to drop, thus, producing a illuminated oil light, and erratic Oil pressure readings. The necessary actions are to have a manual oil pressure test ran on this engine, asap. When running a manual oil pressure test, you will discover if the true oil pressure is low, or normal. If the test proves that the oil pressure is, indeed, low, this will confirm that the Oil pump is suspect.

Now, if the true readings given during the manual oil pressure test are indicating that the pressure is normal, this will be the result of a failed sending unit(oil pressure switch).

Oil lite on immediately after oil pan gasket replaced. What cause


never ever trust a gauge or indicator light. what is the fluid level on the dipstick? maybe the shop that changed the oil didn't put any in it.

Immediately after oil pan gasket change, oil lite came on, but oil full. 1995 Olds 98 regency


Oil could be full, but does it give the correct amount of oil pressure? Check the oil pressure with a by-pass gauge on the engine. That will answer all.

1995 Olds 98 had oil pan gasket replaced. Oil lite came on,


The oil pump broke down or the oil pickup was blocked not feeding oil to the engin. The bad news, the engin is probely ceised and will cost a lot of money to repair, if it is repaireble.Alternetive is to replace the engin. Could be cheaper than repair.

The check engine light is on.


Sometimes disconnecting the battery for a few minutes will reset the check engine light. Make sure you have the correct radio code before doing this or your radio will not work after disconnecting the battery.
