Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you're seeing a message that says maintenance required - see dealer it is because you've passed the emissions maintenance interval. At 67,500 mile intervals you will see this message alerting you that the CCV filter needs to be replaced and the EGR cooler cleaned.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!
