Reset oil life on 2011 regal


Turn the key to the ON position, but do not start the car. Within 10 seconds of turning the key to the ON position press the accelerator 3 times (basically to the floor). That should reset the monitor.

I would like to know how to reset the change oil soon light on a 1999 Buick regal 3.8


It is located in the glove box area, weird place to put it. Find the hole big enough to fit a pencil. Use a pencil or similar object through hole to push the button for 3 seconds and this will restart your oil life meter. I learned many different methods for different vehicles to reset the oil life when I use to work at a shop where we changed oil.

1998 Buick Park Ave., Check engine light is on, the computer displays Oil Change


The check engine light and the oil change indicator message are more than likely not related. You can toggle through the functions and get the oil life % to display then push the reset and hold it for a few seconds and it will reset the oil life indicator message. It should read oil life 100% after reset. (I would change the oil and filter if you have not already done so.)

The check engine light means you are setting an engine code, if it stays on, it is a hard code, if it is intermittant it is a soft code. Have it checked with a scan tool -- plug into your a.l.d.l. connector below the dash on the drivers side and read the code. Autozone and other places will do this for free.

What kind of oil should i put in my regal?


5w 30 is best for this engine, especially in the colder season.
I recommend Amsoil, Castrol, Or Valvoline are some of the best oils. It's solely up to you. If you have high mileage, then high mileage oil has a better protection and longer life.
