Hello Everyone, I am in need of some advise here, I have a 1995 Corolla, and THIS IS MY FIRST CAR, so I dont know mucch about cars, though I am very enthusiastic to learn about them. so I would like to...


The general rule is to change your oil and filter every 3000 miles, some heavy duty oils say 5000 miles. If you want to be sure go 3000 miles, change oil and filter and clean or replace your air filter and your car should last a long time.

I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla. After 5000 miles without an oil change the "Maintenance Required Light" turns on. After getting an oil change, the light will stay on unless someone does something...


1) Get into the car and close the driver's door

2) Put your key in the ignition, but don't turn it.

3) With your left hand, press and hold the odometer reset button (its somewhere near the odometer)

4) With your right hand, turn the key to the position right before start while still holding down the reset button with your left hand.

5) While still holding the reset button, you will see your odometer show up as 000000, keep holding the button until all the zeros disappear.

6) After all the zeros are gone, your odometer will show back up and the "Maint REQ" light will go away.

If you need more detailed instructions, consult your owner's manual. The procedure is outlined there with pictures.

I began using quaker state higher mileage motor oil in my corolla . the garage says it will go 5000 miles between oil changes. do you agree?


Yes I agree. 5000 miles between oil changes is very common. But don't go past that. Todays oils are much more refined than the old 10w30 I used back in the 1970's and 80's.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

How frequently are you supposed to change the oil and filter on a 91 Toyota Corolla?


OEM probably says 5000 miles, but keeping it in good condition means trying to stay close to 3000 mile changes-it's old, be nice to it!

Main reop light in dash


Hello, and welcome to FixYa.

The 'Maint Reqd' light indicates that you are due for an oil change. It will blink 4,500 miles since the light was reset at your last oil change, and stay on steady after 5,000 miles.

If you recently had an oil change, all you need to do is reset your maintenance reqd lamp. The procedure is here on this site inthe 'tips and tricks' section, and it is also in your owner's manual.

Why does my maintenance required light flashes 6 times after starting my 2005 toyota corolla?


its to let you know that its almost time to change your oil. it will stay on when the car has reached 5000 miles since your last oil change or since the light was last reset.

I need to know what type oil to put in my toyota corolla DL 1991 or DX cant remember which.


castrol 10-40 is good if you are over 150000 miles use the high milage oil
or the mobile drive clean 5000 is a little more reasonably priced and it will give you more protection cus most people dont change their oil at every 3000 miles exactly

How to make the service engine light go out after a 5000 mile oil change.


These instructions were posted to reset the Maint Required light on a Toyota Sienna. Process should be the same for your Corolla. Best of luck and hope this answers your question.

  1. With the car started (ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage (not trip A or B).
  2. Turn the car off (ignition key to the OFF position).
  3. Push in AND HOLD the button/knob that switches the odometer
  4. Turn key to ON position without starting the car. You will notice the maintenance light blink and go out.
  5. Release the odometer button/knob.
  6. Turn key to OFF position.
  7. That's it! The "MAINT REQD" light has been reset to warn you to change your oil in another 5,000 or 7,500 miles or so

"maint reqd".


That is for oil changes. It come on when the oil change is due.
When you have your oil change done, the lube tech should reset the this light every time.
If you need help resetting the light, let me know.
