159 ti Oil Change Message
message posted 13.09.2013.
Firstly I realise there are other posts re-deisel 159's but wanted to get an opinion on my 3 year old petrol 159 ti.
About 2 weeks ago a message started to appear when I switch the engine on saying "change oil".
This surprised me because it had an oil change last Dec (nb. not @ an Alfa garage) and since then my mileage has been less than 3,000 miles. Having read other posts and spoken to a few people Ive narrowed this down to 3 possible reasons :-
1. The bloke that did the service last year simply didnt change the oil.
2. He didnt reset the oil change reset button.
3. There is a problem with the oil change reset button.
Re-no2 I find this hard to believe because if he failed to reset the button after the oil change last Dec why has it taken 9 months for a message to appear ?
If anyone has any clues, Id be very grateful,
