Best, Lauren Hudson Hi Lauren, Because you have not mentioned when you are taking it in for an oil change in terms of miles I can only assume you are thinking your car is being used normally and its ok to change it at intervals greater than 3000 miles? I would go to your local parts store and have them check the codes for free because a dealer will have to charge you labor for them to check due to the knowledge needed to use the highly sophisticated scan tool they use. All tires must be replaced at the same time or very, very nearly the same time. They said all looked ok and changed the oil. The only problem I ever had was a transmission at 90K on it and Honda paid for that. Could these problems be connected.
If you have the 4 cylinder model and are using full synthetic oil you can go 5,000 miles based on how you are using the car, but I urge you to check it between oil changes and if it starts to become low, or just as bad turn black and nasty, change it sooner. I know this is a pain, especially when the Dealer has no clue and they wont for a while. If your submission contains links to external sites selling cars or car parts, it will be removed. Also, simple things like replacing 2 tires and having the other two nearly bald will cues the wheels to rotate at slightly different speeds. As far as tire replacement, you have a few options. There is no monitoring system for every component only ones that could affect the emissions of the vehicle, which is really what the check engine light is about and much less to do with any function of the engine.

Hope that helps Justin Justin, first great site and just to follow on with the low oil light thread. There is so much hot air that if I am driving with the air system off then I keep my vents closed.
It came up with a google search. Do you find a brand or viscosity that may be better to use? One thing I want to point out is that when changing the oil if the key is turned to the on position when the oil level is low, or after filling it back up with oil after an oil change and when starting the vehicle you are too quick with the key the low oil light will come on and stay on for a drive cycle even though the oil level is full. You can change it now, and make the switch to synthetic. Sorry to go on but I thought the history would help. I now own an electronic tire pressure gauge and will be adding it to my vehicle's emergency kit. Due to how the engine runs, etc.

I relayed what you wrote in response to my post. Let me say that I am a seasoned car guy and currently have 19 cars in the stable that range from new to old, foreign to domestic.
Humidity and temperature can all affect a switches function if the contacts were made with excessive clearance. This evening, I noticed that my low tire pressure warning light had come on while sitting in a Wegmans parking lot. I change the oil every 3000 to 6000 miles. My question is this a float type of sensor that could be fouled by debris in the oil — metal in particular? There is no alternative method on Euro 4 models! But until that code is checked you won't know whats wrong, if nothing went boom or bang you'll probably be ok. Outback has 79k, oil changed every 7-8k with Mobile 1 full synthetic do it at home, no leaks of any kind , never any mechanical issues, we have aftermarket extended warranty we purchased new with vehicle.
