It just needs an oil change. The light starts flashing around 3000-4000 miles after the last oil change, and goes solid by 5000. Change the oil yourself, then when done reset it by: 1. put key in ignition 2. push the odometer button until he odometer reading shows (not trip a or trip b) 3. hold the odometer button while turning the key to on 4. wait for odometer to reset to 000000 (it'll count down like: ----- ---- --- -- - )
