SOURCE: oil was changed and check engine light was not reset

This is really easy! Please follow these directions:

Turn the key ON

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON; do NOT start the engine

Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.

Release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and the light will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.

Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Thnkasgiving!

SOURCE: oil light keeps coming on and dinging

Your oil sensor may be faulty, or your may have a leak since you said the fluid level is okay.

SOURCE: Oil level was too high/burning oil now

That is not correct.
You need to drive the car untill the oil burns out from your muffler.Don`t try it in the garage -need`s to be driven.
No repairs needed.
Make sure you check your oil level only in idle and warm engine.
always leave about 5mm before the top mark in case of overheating.

3.5L V6. Why does oil pressure light turn on intermittently?


1. As a basic measure I would make sure the correct grade and spec oil is going in the engine. You can no longer trust that a local mechanic or even a dealer service center will necessarily use the required product as stipulated by the manufacturer. It is always better to buy and supply your own so you know the correct product is being used.

2. I would not assume there is a problem with the oil pressure warning light even though there could be.
The first thing the mechanic should have done when you reported the oil pressure issue is to hook up an independent mechanical oil pressure gauge and check oil pressure when the engine is hot at different RPMs. Any oil pressure issue will usually show up at idle when the engine has been warmed up properly and the engine oil is hot (unless you have some kind of intermittent oil pressure relief valve that is sticking). Just replacing parts without actually knowing what the oil pressures are at different RPMs is being sloppy and negligent.
This is what you need to do now. Contact a business that can hook up their own pressure gauge to your engine and have them check the oil pressure readings at various RPMs when the engine is fully warm. If there is a low oil pressure issue it will show up on the oil pressure gauge. As you have a new oil pump there should be no issue now with oil volume or a sticking oil pressure relief valve which on your engine should be part of the oil pump assembly.

3. Worn engines will not be able to sustain required oil pressures. Oil pressure is not produced by the oil pump. The oil pump produces oil flow but the resistance to flow is what produces the oil pressure and that resistance is created by fine clearances between operating engine parts especially on the crankshaft and components connected to it. Once the engine wears the clearances increase and the oil flows past the parts much more easily and produces/builds much less pressure.
How well your engine with over 90000 miles has been maintained depends on how often all the owners changed the engine oil and filter , whether they kept the engine oil level up to full (most owners rarely ever check oil levels between services) and whether they always used the correct product. Manufacturer oil change intervals shown in service schedules can be 10000, 12000 miles or more which is much too infrequent for the type of use 95% of private vehicles experience which typically are on the severe to very severe use end of the spectrum. Engine oil typically needs to be changed at least at half the mileage shown in service books (at least twice as frequently) and thus at least every 5000 miles if you want your engine to last.

High oil warning ml350


Check the oil on the dipstick. If it is high, it may be contaminated with gas or coolant. You can smell if it is gas. If it is coolant, it will look milky brown color. That would point to a head gasket problem.

If the oil looks good and not contaminated, but still high, drain enough out the drain plug until oil is at proper level, or just go ahead and drain all the oil so it can be looked at at for contamination. Because if jiffy lube put too much in, you are right, the light should have come on sooner. The whirring noise could very well be from a high oil level, so look into all possibilities. If oil is not too high, it could be just a sensor problem-but it doesn't sound like it. Good luck.

Oil light will only come on when the sensor does not detect oil flow.You may have a circulation issue not allowing oil to return to oil pan quick enough to keep up on motorway. Have valve covers removed and check for build up at oil return ports in top of head(s)

Just bought a 2006 Crossfire. The area where the (Trip Milage) is, a beep then the Oil Logo with the word HI comes on once a day at least. The Manual says the Oil has too much and the oil pan needs to be...


Yes its mentioned correct in manual.The HI indication comes on when there is about 1 quart too much oil. Get the excess oil drained.----------- CHECKING ENGINE OIL LEVEL:-------- A sensor in the oil pan allows oil level to be checked
without opening the hood. It provides an accurate measurement of oil level, whereas the low engine oil level indicator warns that oil level is definitely too low. With the vehicle parked on a level surface, the engine is warmed up and shut off for approximately five minutes.When the ignition switch is turned to the ON/RUN position, an ISO oil level icon appears in the trip odometer window and a "clock" icon in the cumulative odometer display. Pressing the knob to the left of the speedometer twice within one second displays one of the following messages:
• OK
• -1.0 Q (-1.0L)
• -1.5 Q (-1.5L)
• -2.0 Q (-2.0L)
• HI
The indicated amount of oil must be added to the engine
if the message -2.0 Q (-2.0L) blinks and a signal sounds.
The HI message indicates that the excess oil must be
removed from the pan to avoid possible engine or
catalytic converter damage. If the ISO oil level icon and
"clock" icon remain on when attempting to check oil
level and no message follows, or if the low engine oil
level warning lamp comes on, a malfunction in the
engine oil level system is indicated. A conveniently
located dipstick allows manual checking of the oil level.
If no leaks are noted, continue to drive to the nearest
service station where the engine oil should be topped to
the "full" mark on the dipstick with an approved oil.--------------------

Either you have a lubrication problem or a bad oil pressure sender. You need to have it scanned for DTC and do an oil pressure test before you seize your engine.

possible too much oil, drain all the oil out and put the correct amount back in and since you have the oil drained go ahead and change the oil filter.

It could be an oil pressure sensor faulty, just giving off bad reading when the level is actually correct.
