Oil condition light has come on after being serviced 6 months ago by Vauxhall, Take it oil needs changing again owing to regains. They told me frequent regains will cause the oil to deteriorate but after 6 months with just small miles really ?. If i change oil myself and flush engine will the oil condition light go out or does it have to go to Vauxhall for reset ?

Cheers Kev

I was told that the frequency of the light can be set at your service.

My wife says that I never listen or something like that !

It may be they have guessed you anual mileage and then set it according to that and don't forget if set too early, they will get a visit from you and an oil change. Kerching !

Personally I change my oil and filer every 6 months, but I cover approx. 20k/year.
You can get Dexos2 oil for less than £25. Filter is a bit more expensive.

Can't say I have used this method but it's worked for others so got to give it a try

It works Up to 2013 models 2014 have a different ecu software so will not work for after 2013 models

Hi everyone, Happy New Year

My oil light came on to indicate I needed to top up the oil, I added a whole litre bottle but the light still comes on when I start the engine. I have only used the car once since the light came on and I added oil. How much should I add generally when it needs topping up?

Thanks in advance!
