Does anyone know of a way I can get the oil minder alerts in synch with actual oil changes? Here's what's going on.
At 6,012 miles / 9½ months the dealership gave our new Fiesta its first oil change. They commented that at around 6,000 miles is when they like to give a new car its first oil & filter change. The oil minder wasn't on at this time. Then 1,923 miles / 1½ months later the oil minder lit up. That was about 1,206 miles ago back on 2016-Dec-13.
My first thought was to just reset it, but then it dawned on me that if I do that then the oil minder will be out of synch with when oil changes should really be done. I would just have to do the oil changes based purely on mileage and whenever the oil minder comes on I would just reset it. I would really like to have the oil minder coincide with when oil changes are really needed.
I look forward to any help that could be offered.
