HI,Hi,below is the drive cycle to perform and as you see, it is not mileage based. but condition based. Make sure to do this exactly as describedEnsure that the fuel tank is between 1/4 and 3/4 full.Start cold (below 86°F /30°C) and warm up until engine coolant temperature is at least 160° F (typically requires at least one minute; up to 3 minutes).Accelerate to 40-55 MPH at 25% throttle and maintain speed for five minutes.Decelerate without using the brake (coast down) to 20 MPH or less, then stop the vehicle. Allow the engine to idle for 10 seconds, turn the key off, and wait one minute.Restart and accelerate to 40-55 MPH at 25% throttle and maintain speed for two minutes.Decelerate without using the brake [or the clutch!] by coasting down to 20 MPH or less, then stop the vehicle. Allow the engine to idle for 10 seconds, turn the key off, and wait one minute. Do this 2 days in a row and the monitors will set to ready Please remember to rate service using the rating page so that I may receive credit.
