    Well I have tried that and it still did not work. Everytime I turn on the car it says it then i have to run through the options to move it from the dash. It gets tiresome. So does anyone else have a solution?

You sould be able to reset that from the dash ,these options beside the dash go to the end and when you get to oil and % press on the checkmark and that would do the trick.

Sometimes they just fail to reset properly. Nothing to worry about. The youtube video shows the procedure to reset for a Chevy Truck, should be the same for your Chevy car.

Here's a website with explanation.

Oillifter noise, oil getting sticky


Need to check the oil pump pressure or if there is a lag in pressure. You need to check if the oil lamp lights up soon after starting and if so the pressrure can be low. Also check the quality of oil , change the oil if this was not done for a long time.

I have a 97 Chevy Lumina. It has 276,*** miles on it. I bought it used 4 months ago. It was running excellent then the service engine soon light, low coolant light, and change oil soon light started coming...


The fact that the oil was low would not be from the oil pump, but from wear in the engine. If it is not smoking when you start it or as you drive, you can probably keep it running by just keeping the oil level checked at each fuel fill-up. As for the car shutting off, you didn't say if the engine seized or got real hot. A low oil pressure problem should have triggered a warning light before the problem got to the point where you lost the engine.

If the car ran after you added the oil, you got lucky and need to always check it.

How do i reset flashing low tire pressure,change oil soon after the problem is taken care of?


To reset the tire pressure message, first make sure all pressures are appropriate, then turn the ignition on with the engine off. Press and hold the GAGES button located on the left side of the steering column until TIRE PRESSURE appears in the display. Press and hold the RESET button for 5 seconds until TIRE PRESSURE RESET appears then release the RESET button.

To reset change oil soon message, press GAGES button until OIL LIFE displays. Press and hold RESET for 5 seconds.

My change oil light never goes off even though I had it changed and now my service vehicle soon light is on even though its been running fine


The change oil light needs to be reset after each oil change...some shops are not knowledgeable on how to do this...Your owners manual will instruct you how to reset the oil change light...The service engine soon is a catch all for low fluids and other needs...Be sure to check your oil level again...to clear the service engine soon light, you can disconnect either battery cable for 15 minutes then reconnect...if the service engine stays on...then you need to have your Grand Am checked...Auto Zone does a free diagnostic of check engine light codes...:)
