Driving it fast for 2 days.. now computer says:


I remember last week that I checked the Info Service menu at my car and found that I had no near future services to do until December'13; everything was on green checks. Friday and Saturday I decided to drive my car "hard", not the way I use to normally drive.

Then suddenly yesterday the service red light appeared on my dash and it stated that Oil Change Overdue with a red triangle. I always thought that before getting a red light you get a yellow light first to warn you.

My question is, the oil change due date is calculated on time or is it variable and gets calculated based on the way you drive the car?

And also, the oil change includes replacing any filters? or just the pure drain/pour of new oil.

Btw, my oil level is stated a "too high".
