Why oil service required

I will assume you are referring to a light on your instrument panel which says this. If so, you car has a system to remind you of the need for regular oil changes. Your owner's manual will tell you how to turn off that light after you have changed your oil, if you do it yourself. Your service garage will do it if you have them do it. Do not neglect your oil changes or you may suffer engine failure.
Be blessed.

    • 1 Insert the key into the ignition. Turn the switch to the "On" position.
    • 2 Press the odometer reset button repeatedly until "Trip A" is displayed.
    • 3 Turn the ignition to the "OFF" position.
    • 4 Press and hold the odometer reset button. Turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position.
    • 5 Release the odometer reset button after the indicator displays "000000." The maintenance service light turns off.

The light is telling you that it is time to perform regular maintainance on the vehicle. If it is not reset even after an oil change, after 10,000 miles it will stay on after the vehicle is started and remain on until it is reset. I would suggest getting any required maintainence done on the vehicle but you can reset the light yourself if you want. The way to do it is turn the ignition switch to the off position, engine not running. Push and hold the select/reset button to the right of the speedo in the instrument cluster (see arrow in picture below) and hold. While keeping pressed in, turn the key to the "on" position (not starting the car). Remain holding the button down for about ten seconds or until the light goes off. That should reset the maintanence required light for you and gives you 10,000 mile more until it does it again. I hope this helps and good luck.

The service engine soon light is you think this is something major? My car has sat without driving it much for about a month.

If there are no symptoms, a typical cause is a sensor failure which might affect mileage or emissions, but would not be unsafe. The best thing to do is get the car scanned for trouble codes to see what it is. Autozone and Advance offer free scans.

How do I get the maintainance required light off

Turn the key off, hold down the odo button on the dash, turn the key on and keep holding the odo button for about 7 seconds. The display screen on the dash will start to flash, release the button and press it down again and keep holding it until the display stops blinking. All done.

My daughter's '97 Honda Accord has a "maintenance required" light on the dash that's in the red. Does this mean there's something serious wrong? Or just scheduled maintenance is overdue? The milage is...

It just means it time to change your oil. If it has been changed recently and you just want to shut your light off just hold down the trip reset button. While holding it down turn the ignition on but do not start the engine. keep holding the button down for approx. 10 secs. the light should start flashing and then go out. then release the trip reset button and turn the ignition off. and the light will be reset.

1 - does anyone know how long Ford has been having issues with EGR coolers and specifially why - if it is so well known that if you don't do the oil cooler and flush - why only in April 09 did they change...

Most mechanics that have been around for a while know to do this it's part of the maintainance of the rig. You also have to test the antifreeze's PH level to see if there is any oxidation going on so that the antifreeze can be changed and any electrolysis that is detected at that time would indicate that it needs to be flushed and o-rings replaced for the oil cooler. Most people don't do the services required until it ruins an engine. Just like the Internet add saying mechanics are charging for antifreeze and thermostat changes and transmission filter and oil changes I can testify to the fact that you don't do these two items you will lose the transmission or engine for a 100 bucks. Engine parts wear the can turns 2 times as much as the crank so if your running at 2500 RPM and drive 100,000 do the math things wear out. So we get blamed that we are pinching the public for a buck if we do the required maintains or suggest it and then when something goes wrong we get blamed for not telling them to do the service. And after ford got sued for 2 pounds of air pressure that they did not make or design they got sued for billions, you think they are going to open their mouths up unless they have to? big rigs have had to have thier oil anilized since I can remember the 60's and 70's you are just now finding out.

Maintainance Check

Our 2006 Corolla has a "Maintenance Required" light in addition to the "Check Engine" one. MR light comes on every 5000 miles telling you to change oil and whatever's in the book. To turn it off,
Set Cluster Display to ODOMETER (not Trip A or Trip B)
Ignition Off
Hold Cluster Display button down
Ignition On, Continue to Hold button down
Odometer will change to "----------" then return to Miles Display
Light goes Out
