How do you reset the Change Oil light on a 2001 Chevrolet Venture?
The change oil light comes on and frequently on my 2001 Venture.
The "OIL Change doc" at our local garage says it is a problem with
the oil screen. It gets gunked up and needs to be cleaned or
replaced to stop this message. It could also cause overheating in
the van if left unattended.
This information can be found in your owner's manual. Don't have
one get one. Try Dealer, Salvage Yard, E-Bay, or do a Google
search. Many sites sell owner's manuals.
At www.chevrolet.com you can sign up and see your owner's manual

6-16 How to Reset the Change Engine Oil Message The GM Oil Life
System_ calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based
on vehicle use. Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it
can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation
occurs where you change your oil prior to a change engine oil
message being turned on, reset the system. 1. With the ignition key
in RUN but the engine off, repeatedly push the trip/reset button
until OIL is displayed on the Driver Information Center. 2. When
OIL is displayed, push and hold the trip/reset button for five
seconds. The number will disappear and be replaced by 100
(indicating 100% oil life remaining). 3. Turn the key to OFF. If
the change engine oil message comes back on, the engine oil life
monitor has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
