That question is very tough to answer.
It depends on driving conditions and other factors. If the vehicle is driven 5,000 to 10,000 miles per year and not in dusty areas or in city traffic, you can change it at 5000 or 6000 miles.
If the vehicle is driven more than 10,000 miles per year, or in dusty conditions, or city traffic, the oil should be changed more often.
And using synthetic oil changes the formula.

Letter A and numbers 1&4 appear on instrumentation panel


A or B = it's time for an oil change. "A" means oil only and "B" means oil and filter but, we always change both.
1 = tire rotation is due.
2 = replace air and cabin filters.
3 = replace transmission fluid.
4 = replace spark plugs.
5 = replace engine coolant.

There is a little box that is red where it says maintanance required. Is it suppost to be red? And what do i normally need to fix.


It means it is time to change your oil and can be reset by pushing in on the small cavity with a key.
But change the oil first, otherwise you will be neglecting the engine maintenance.

1999 pontiac grand prix service engine light soon is on, what does it mean ?


The service engine soon light is an indicator /reminder for you to do some type of maintanence work on your vehicle, depending upon your mileage that you have accumulated on your car dictates the sort of maintanence needed on the car.
Can either be as simple as an oil change or as complicated as a major service/tuneup, oil change, transmission change, wheel alignment, brake inspect, tire rotation etc.
Once the work is performed the technician must turn off the light.
Reference the dealership or reliable repair shop for further information.

How to replace a fuel filter on a 2007 4runner


It's the new age of car design. As building tolerances become greater, engine/drivetrains become more efficient, and lubricants (ie synthetics) improve in wear properties, maintanance has been greatly extended on modern cars. Just follow your maintanance schedules (mostly oil and filters) and you'll be fine.

Hello, I have a 2002 honda civic ex. When I turn the key on I get the maintanence required light. after the engine starts the light blinks 10 times and then goes out. I couldn't find any guidance in the...


First, make sure you are talking about your mainanence required light, and not your check engine light.
Your maintanence required light is telling you that some normal maintanence is required since you have traveled some pre-determined number of miles (pre-determined by Honda). For example, it could mean an oil change should take place, etc. If you keep track of those things on your own, then you need only reset the light, as follows:
Turn off the engine.
Press and hold the Select/Reset knob (odometer) in the instrument panel, then turn the ignition switch just to ON (II). Do not start the car.
Hold the knob for approximately ten seconds until the indicator resets.
Hope this helps you.
