Question about 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado

1 Answer

Reset warnings digital dash - don't know how to reset warnings (audio and visual), after changing oil and recharging air conditioning, as the warnings instructed. Also, odometer (total mileage) recently started blinking "error", for unknown reason. This "as new" car has only 27,000 miles on it - I don't want any discrepancy about that fact. Thanks, Gary

The air in my 1999 Sienna doesn't get as cold as it used to. Is it possible to add refrigerant and if so, what do I look for?


Look for a phone book, turn to the yellow pages, find auto repair section and look for a local shop which does air conditioning work. You want your system checked for leaks, and then recharged. You are not going to add refrigerant yourself and have good results. Stay away from dealers and chain stores.

How do you recharge the air conditioning system for a 97 cadillac


Just get an R134a recharge kit, and follow the instructions.

The kit contains canisters of oil and R134a and a hose with a gauge on it.

Add about 2 or 3 cans of refrigerant on a system where the refrigerant leaked out.

One may also want to add leak sealer. which comes in a can like the pure 134a.

My digital dash oil lvl is reading at 16% what does that stand for? 2006 Chevrolet cobalt LT coupe


Hello. What that means is that only 16% of your car's oil life remains before you should get an oil change. This is a better method of knowing when to change the oil than the old fashioned rule of thumb of merely changing the oil every 3,000 miles.
When you do have the oil changes, the counter can be reset back to 100%. If you have your oil changed at a garage, they will reset the counter for you. otherwise look in the owner manual for the instructions on how to reset the counter. regards, Joe
ps = kindly rate my answer as helpful. thanks.

For the last several days that I have started my car, I have gotten the warning chim for Oil Change Required, Contact Dealer. I have put approximately 1,500 miles since my last oil change. I have 5,600...


If the oil change warning was not reset at the previous oil change it's letting you know about the 5,000 required change, and it will continue to chime until reset. See your manual or dealer for reset instructions.

What is the icon's mean on the dash board, when climbing on a hill there's a red light on, but going down it turns off. it looks like there's is over heating or something, please help max'd 07


It depends on what warning light is on!
In any case, from your description and experience, it would be your engine 'Oil' warning light: it comes on when there is not enough lubrication (thus the overheating) flowing because of low oil pressure: immediately check your oil leveland top up as required) and make sure that change your oil and oil filter as soon as possible as it is a very damaging condition and the engine could seize.
Hope it helps: let me know hoe you go.

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage


The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...

Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.
