The last time I drove it at night I noticed the headlights and dislay on gas tank fiickering almost to the point of going out completely.

I would suggest you have your battery checked to see if it will sustain a draw load or if it will take a charge. You might need a new battery.

Buy a cheap code reader ($20) and check your codes or go to your local parts place and some will read your codes for you for free.A blinking "check engine light" is a severe warning and the codes should be checked NOW.

I just bought a 96 Nissan maxima with a new engine. Drives great, I noticed the overdrive button was on, seeing that I usually only rive around town I turned it off, now the car doesn'

to start with does turning the od button on allow it to start
if it does leave it at that because it will not get to over drive unless throttle settings and road speed are right
the problem with used cars is that previous owners change things and don't pass on the changes so it may have been tampered with
you could always take it to an accredited auto electrician to have the circuit checked out for changes

I just noticed the oil level on my 950 Vstar is down almost a litre in 3800 kms. Is this normal?

Oil "use" on engines can vary widely, depending on the engine design and the conditions under which the motor has been run. VW, for example, considers 1 liter of oil consumption per 1600 km to be perfectly acceptable performance in its automotive engines--much to the chagrin of many car owners, who are used to motors that don't consume oil at even half that rate. In addition, sustained high-speed driving / riding will also tend to consume more oil, mostly because oil vapor is sucked into the engine as part of the emissions system.
After a long (300 km or more) highway run with my old XZ-550, I was always down about half a liter. I could ride much further than that around town and in low-speed riding without consuming any noticeable amount of oil, even when I started using synthetic oil, which had a tendency to leak past some of the motor's gaskets.
I would double-check with other V-Star owners, but I am personally not alarmed at the oil consumption that you have described, even with a relatively new, probably low-mileage motorcycle.
