Have you changed your oil? If its new then just reset the computer/ diagnostic screen between your RPM and Speed. Press the screen button until it reads "setup menu, Hold reset" now hold the button until the screen changes again.

press the button until screen reads "system check, hold reset"

press and hold the button. It will start a basic system check,

First check is for oil, it will read the percent of "good oil left" and say "if new, press and hold reset"

thus press and hold reset, and the computer will reset your oil life to 100%.

New mechanic reccomended transmission flush and service. is this good advice?


for automatic transmissions where the oil is not fresh but shows signs of burning ( burnt smell) , the transmission shows signs of sluggish changing the a flush would be recommended
There are 2 methods that can be used
the first is a cheap method where the pan is removed and the oil taken out and the filter cleaned
While the pan is off , the clutch packs and bands can be adjusted
The more costly method but a far better choice is to flush the transmission while the engine is running
Oil is sucked in from a fresh drum and delivered to a waste drum. this changes all the oil in the transmission and torque converter where as the first method leaves dirty oil in the torque converter
The second method does not require the pan removal so adjustments are not done and the filter is not cleaned
While the advice to change the oil is good you have to decide which method you want to use
I suggest a discussion of the merits of both with an accredited transmission shop and get quotes.

How to change oil in supercharger on 94 buick park ave ultra


It is not necessary to change the oil in the supercharger. The only maintenance required is to CHECK the oil level every 30.000 miles. GM says that it is normal for some of the oil to get lost during normal use by seepage therough the front seal area. It requires 5W-30 synthetic oil.

I guess if you really want to CHANGE the oil, it would require removal of the supercharger and remove the oil fill plug and turn the supercharger upside-down to make the oil drain out.

Maint required light just came on .....2008 toyota camry....is this a bad sign or a minimal problem


The maintenance required light lets you know its time for an oil change. Once the oil is changed the light can be reset. The light will usually blink for a few seconds as you approach the 5,000 mile mark and then stay on steady as the 5,000 mile mark is reached or surpassed.

Why does my honda accord 1999 model 2.3L engine show the sign "maintainance required on the dash board?


More than likely it's a reminder for the oil change. Easy fix:
With the key out, hold down the reset button on your odometer, put the key in, and turn the car on while still holding the button down. Wait until the Maintenance Required light goes off, probably about 30 seconds or so, and then turn it off and remove the key and your finger from the button. Restart the car, it should flash once (as it always does) and then stay off.
Try any combo, your 99 may be different than my 01, but shouldn't be very much. Good luck!

Just bought my Honda accord 2007 but it did not come with book. When the wrench sign on the dashboard is lit what does that mean. It also shows oil......15% does it need oil change?


The wrench on your dash board means that maintenace is required. if your oil is at 15% it is time for an oil change and the tech that changes your oil will reset the light.

After oil change the main req sign is the last one to fade


To reset go to screen where it says the oil life percentage. Have the car off but in the on position. Press the odometer button (same button to get to the oil life screen) in and hold for a while, something like 30 sec or so until it starts flashing...Then let go and push the button again and hold and after like 5 seconds i think it will then display 100% and that's it. Hope this helps you, good luck!
