{: ) It could be that it was not reset properly and successfully when you last changed your oil. A scan tool can reset it better. Also, double check for oil level and leaks.

My 2006 chevy hhr is in between oil changes and two courts low and time to change oil again.


First thing,don't let the manufacture tell you that you can 5000 to 6000 mile without an oil change.Next thing they want you to use oil that is much too thin.They don't want the engine to last too long because they can't sell you a new car that often.City driving you need to change your oil at least every 3000 mile and highway every 4000 mile.The biggest problem is having you oil changed at a quick change that uses BULK oil.If they don't offer oil from a jug,next time bring you own oil if you have to.Use 10w30 in the winter months and 10w40 in the Summer.It don't hurt to put in a can of STP after each change.

2006 Toyota Corolla le - maintenance light on front panel - engine serviced with oil and air filter changed two months ago. All liquids fine, car working well...what might it be??



  • That light is an indicator that the required miles have been drove and it's time to do an oil change. The light should be reset after every oil change as the computer keeps track of the miles to warn you when it's time again should you forget.

  • If you want to turn the light off then follow these steps.


  • Push and hold the trip button and then turn the ignition to on while holding the trip reset button. Keep holding for 10 seconds and the maintenance required light will go offf.

Just bought a 2000 pontiac Gt with 110000 miles on it two days ago. Ive driven it 137 miles before the service engine soon light came on. What do you think it is


The service engine light is usually a flag for an oil change or other maintenance item. If it is reset, it will come back on in 5000 miles as a reminder to change the oil. Ask your dealer's service department how to reset the indicator and do it when you change your oil. I know for Saturn, the proceedure is Turn the key to the on position without starting the engine and within 5 seconds press the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor 3 times. Not sure if it will be the same for the Pontiac, but you could give it a try.

The Change Oil (not oil light) in my 2002 Camaro came on less than 10 miles after it left the shop for new brakes, and less than 300 miles since its last oil change. What would cause the change oil light...


If you changed your oil just less than three miles ago, you just need to reset the computer. In this vehicle it may be the same as other chevys. what you will need to do is turn the key to the run position. Depress on the gas pedal three times and turn off the key. this should reset the computer. good Luck

How do I reset the "Oil Change Warning Indication" on colorado


if you have a owners manual read it. try coloradofans.com website and search the forums. i think johnny5846 is right if you don't have a DIC (driver info center). i believe you use the DIC(tripodometer). i don't know the sequence off hand, you can also you can change your lock settings and alarm settings, etc. with the DIC.

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 A - Relace engine oil.
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.

Oil


Check the oil level, check that there is no leak and that oil is not being consumed inside the engine.
If oil is low it can be because of a bad gasket, a broken oill filter, or engine is getting old and starts burning oil inside the cylinders, you see black smoke from exhaust when this happen.

If you just want to reset the warning you can unplug battery cables for ten minutes. You mey be asked car stereo security code when connecting back.
