Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be more than happy to assist you.
Is it the Low Oil Light or the Low Oil Pressure Light that comes on?
The light is only tells you the Engine oil needs to be changed or it is Low.
If you had the vehicle serviced and you know oil level is good then someone did not reset the oil life system.
Ok. so that makes sense but why does the pressure gauge move when you push on gas? how do i reset it? :)
The oil pump runs off the Camshaft. so when the speed of the camshaft increases the oil pump drive increases and the oil pressure goes higher.
When the system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is necessary. A ENGINE OIL light message will come on. Change the engine oil as soon as possible within the next 600 miles (1 000 km). It is possible that, if driving under the best conditions, the oil life system may not indicate that an oil change is necessary for over a year. However, the engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the system must be reset.
If the system is ever reset accidentally, change the engine oil at 3,000 miles (5 000 km) since last oil change.
How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes back on when you start the vehicle, the ENGINE OIL LIFE SYSTEM has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
