I own a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer. After my last oil change when I start the oil light stays on for a good five seconds then goes out. The only time this light comes on is at start up. Is this something I should take into the dealership to check?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Nini, The first thing I would do it check the oil level. If it is down at all, I would get it into the shop right away. It never hurts to ask questions. You could call on the shop that last changed the oil and see if they noticed anything odd. Amy

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com This light usually flashes like this when approaching a service interval and then comes on steady when at the service interval. This is explained in your vehicles owners manual. it sounds like the maintenence reminder was not reset at the previous service. Take it back to the dealership to reset or read your owners manual for instructions on how to reset this maintenance reminder light.
