I have a 2000 Camaro SS with 15,000 miles on it. I store it winter/sprint
and mostly drive it during summer and fall - less than half the year, rarely
putting more than 2000 miles on it a year.
Last October I used Mobile One synthetic for the first time, it is now June
and I have only drove 1,000 miles on the oil.
While driving today, the 'change oil' light came on for about 25 seconds and
then disappeared and has yet to come back on.
My question is, does the light actually "monitor" the oil effectiveness or
does it only a 3,000 mile calculator?
Since the light went off ... is it ok to continue to drive with current oil
because of the low mileage? I was going to change the oil again in the fall
before I put the car away for the winter.
Thanks in advance.
