Yes you are correct...This is the oil change indicator/check light.The ecm has a built in oil level/interval change period preprogrammed in the vehicle.A simple oil change will cure this light on your vehicle.A set of ramps, metric wrenches, and an oil drain bucket will be what you need to complete this if you would like to do this yourself.Happy holidays!!

A small red alladin lamp type symbol with 3 droplets coming from the spout. what is it? what does it mean?


Look in your manual instrument cluster section. You did not specify the year, make or model to determine what it means. If you do not have the manual, google search year, make, model and manual.

You might want to check your fluid levels right now, as red light on dash is not good.

What does the red oil light mean on 1998 deville. also car has oil in it. stop engine now light came on too. Why ?


If your oil light is on, it means that the control module thinks there is no oil pressure. It could be a bad oil pressure sending unit, or it could be that the oil pump is out and that the engine is actually not getting oil. The engine would need to have a mechanical gauge put on to find out if it does have pressure.

There is funny shape light in the dash board, "what does it mean?"


How would someone know what funny shape means

If you have no owners manual google dash board symbols

When you turn on the key you should see & know every
symbol on the dash
After the engine starts they all should be off or you got problems

Light on the dash comes on and off the light is yellow and on right hand side shaped like watering can


It could be the low oil pressure warning light. That light looks like an oil can with one drip of oil on the tip.
If that is the light it is telling you the oil pressure in the engine is low.
You might want to check with a dealer to make sure if you don't have an owners manual.

Check in your engine compartment the brake fluid level by the servo side and see whether the level is on Maximum if is not then surely check your brakes.
