I have had my 04 M6 since November and I love it. Yesterday my "Service Engine Oil" indicator came on. How does this indicator work? Does it come on after a specific mileage is reached? If so, how can I reset it? Thanks for your help.

You shouldn't reset it unless you change the oil though. The oil life monitoring algorthym takes many variables into account. You can read more about it here:

I like Chevy's version of the oil life monitor because it shows you oil life remaining vice just turning on a light. So I can see when my oil changes are getting close and plan them better. In my wife's Chevy Trailblazer, she has been averaging about 8,500-9,500 miles per oil change using this monitor. :cheers

Gotta dissagree here. Technology isn't a bad thing and sometimes is good for the enviroment. New oils last much longer than before. Don't take my word on it do the homework. I figure by not doing oil changes every three thousand miles I can do more burnouts and break about even in the enviroment dept.:rolleyes:
