How To Reset Oil Change Indicator?


The oil change reminder is easy to reset.

The Simple procedure Is As follows:---------

Turn the key on without starting the engine. Press the accelerator to the floor and release it three times within ten seconds and then turn the key off. This will reset the oil life monitor. Oil life is calculated based on driving conditions so this monitor will be more accurate than going by a sticker based on mileage.


Why This Oil Service Message Is Indicated?What's The Exact Reason for This message On Overhead Display?

The perform service message is displayed when routine maintenance is needed. On the 6.7 engine when the perform service message is displayed it is time to clean the EGR valve, EGR cooler, and replace the closed crankcase ventilation filter on top of the valve cover.


Ok,But How To Reset The Maintenance Monitor?

To reset the maintenance monitor you will need to turn the key on, press and release the brake pedal twice, then press and release the accelerator twice, and then turn the key off.


Ok,And What About Engine Light Flashing 10 Times On Dash?

I Will Say Its Not To Worry Issue.The flash code feature went away on Chrysler products after the 1996 model year so the flashing engine light you are seeing isn't anything to be concerned with. The status of the engine light is now used for emissions test readiness monitoring.

Suppose if you turn the key ON and 

  • The light flashes that means all monitors have not ran and passed since the last memory reset. 
  • If the light goes out that means monitors have ran and no codes are stored,
  • If the light stays on constantly then that means codes are stored. 
Still i suggest to get your vehicle ECM scanned.If there is any other problem,the error code will show.
  • Since your engine light is staying off and nothing shows up with a scan tool you know no codes are stored.


OK,How To Deal With The EGR Cooler And The EGR Valve?
Should I clean Them Or Replace The Parts Directly?

  7. CCV Drain Lines
  8. Fuel Pump
  9. EGR Airflow Control Valve
  10. EGR Valve
They need to be removed for the cleaning. 

Ok,Where Are This Parts located?
The valve is over on the left side on the air intake. On the top, front of the engine you'll see the round metal tube going from one side of the engine to the other, this goes to the EGR valve over on the left side. The valve is held to the air intake with four 10mm bolts. To clean the valve it would need to be removed and then a solution of Mopar EGR cleaner and water mixed up is used to clean the inside of the valve.

Ok,And Where Is The EGR Cooler Unit Located?

The EGR cooler is the large unit mounted to the top of the exhaust manifold on the right side of the engine. It has a two bolt flange all the way in the back where the exhaust flows in, it flows through the cooler, through the cooler bypass valve, and then it connects to the EGR tube I mentioned. The cooler would need to be removed, one end of it sealed off and a mixture of the EGR cleaner is used to fill the cooler and let it sit, then it gets rinsed out with hot water to remove soot buildup.

Ok,and How To Replace Crankcase Filter?

To replace the crankcase filter you would need to remove the small cover on the top/front of the engine, the coil cap, and then the plastic cover on the top of the valve cover. 
There are about eight 8mm bolts to remove, the cover comes off and the filter can be lifted out and replaced.
