Oil life is 50 percent does it means low or need oil change


It does not mean either. Your Car has a Gauge that Counts down from 100% and goes to ZERO,. 100% means you have 3,000 to 5,000 miles before you need to CHANGE YOUR OIL.... 50% means you have 1,500 to 2,500 miles BEFORE you need to change your Oil.

What does the percentage mean regarding my oil


oil life. 100% means you just changed oil. 0% means the oil is worn. the computer tells you when to change oil based on hours run speed acceleration and engine temp. Id change mine when it says 10% because at 0% the oil is toast. when you change the oil you need to reset the cluster so it reads 100% most lube places do this for you. if not read the manual it tells you how to reset

I jusy purchased a 2008 honda accord with no owners manuel.The car has 19,000. miles.The oil life states its at 100%. My question is do I get an oil change?


100% indicates the oil is new, or at least the oil life meter has been reset. It counts down as it gets closer to oil change time.

NEED TO RESET OIL CHANGE LIGHT


How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Whenever the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where the oil is changed prior to a CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message being turned on, reset the system.
Always reset the engine oil life to 100% after every oil change. It will not reset itself. To reset the Engine Oil Life System:
Display the OIL LIFE REMAINING on the DIC.
Press and hold the SET/RESET button on the DIC for more than five seconds. The oil life will change to 100%.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes back on when the vehicle is started, the Engine Oil Life System has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy
