Chevrolet Cruze Owners Manual: Engine Oil Life System

When to Change Engine Oil

 

This vehicle has a computer system that indicates when to change the engine oil and filter. This is based on a combination of factors which include engine revolutions, engine temperature, and miles driven.

Based on driving conditions, the mileage at which an oil change is indicated can vary considerably. For the oil life system to work properly, the system must be reset every time the oil is changed.

When the system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it indicates that an oil change is necessary. A CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON DIC message or Code 82 DIC message comes on.

Change the oil as soon as possible within the next 1000 km (600 mi).

It is possible that, if driving under the best conditions, the oil life system might indicate that an oil change is not necessary for up to a year. The engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and, at this time, the system must be reset. Your dealer has trained service people who will perform this work and reset the system. It is also important to check the oil regularly over the course of an oil drain interval and keep it at the proper level.

If the system is ever reset accidentally, the oil must be changed at 5000 km (3,000 mi) since the last oil change.

Remember to reset the oil life system whenever the oil is changed.

How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System

 

Reset the system whenever the engine oil is changed so that the system can calculate the next engine oil change. To reset the system: 1. Using the DIC MENU button and thumbwheel, scroll until you reach REMAINING OIL LIFE on the DIC (2. Press the SET button to reset the oil life at 100%. When prompted, use the thumbwheel % for Canada).

2. Press the SET button to reset the oil life at 100%. When prompted, use the thumbwheel to highlight YES or NO. Press the SET/CLEAR button to confirm.

Be careful not to reset the oil life display accidentally at any time other than after the oil is changed.

It cannot be reset accurately.

If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON DIC message or Code 82 DIC message comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
