Chevrolet Monte Carlo Oil Reset Instruction
The car was named for the city Monte Carlo in the Principality of Monaco, specifically the ward of Monte Carlo/Spélugues.
How to Reset the Engine Oil Life
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change
your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use.
Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can
calculate when the next oil change is required. If a
situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a
CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message being
turned on, reset the system.
After changing the engine oil, the system must be reset.
To reset the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message,
do the following procedures:
1. Turn the ignition to RUN, with the engine off.
2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal slowly
three times within five seconds. If the CHANGE
ENGINE OIL SOON message flashes, the system
is reset. However, if it stays on, it did not reset.
Repeat the procedure.
3. Turn the key to OFF.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes
back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil
life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
