Has anyone had the computer throw the "change oil" indicator this soon?
Seems like it's early.
Yes, mine has done this twice. That means 2 oil changes already. I was told it was driving habits. The manual service states changing oil every 10000 km or in your case every 6000 miles. It actually doubled the service schedule. My driving habits are always the same or at least the wifes is too. I just had my oil done 2 days ago but the indicator told me to do it 600 km ago. I just ignored the stupid thing at start-ups for a while. It isn't going to hurt anything. I still will take it in no matter what and have them change the oil evry 5000km/3000miles. To me, its a pain in the @ss. This new feature is new on a all 08 chrysler/Jeep/ Dodge vehicles. GM has had this feature for a while now, so I am told.
mine came on the other day at 2500 miles....i already had an appointment for the 24th so i didn't care....i will hit the 3 month mark before mileage....and my oil changes are free from the dealer, so it doesn't affect me to get it done early....oh and they are going to attempt to fix the leak in the freedom top....we will see about that
There are enough threads here in re when to change and what to use filter and oil-wise. Do as you feel, but keep in mind your warranty. That said, to get rid of the idiot light: Turn key to "On" position (don't start jeep), within 10 seconds apply gas pedal 3 times, not super fast or slow, you have 10 seconds, turn key to off. Try it now, light should be gone. If not, try again. If after 4th try it hasn't worked, run 3x around car naked at exactly 3:13pm on a Sunday while muttering curses under your breath. Your neighbors will have you Baker-Acted and you won't have to worry about the light anymore..
