    I have a 99 Z28, as for as I know the Oil Change light is done off average RPM, speed and mathmatical stuff. its doesnt monitor or reset when you change the oil, mine usually turns on every 3-6 thousand miles. its easy to reset.

    Oil change light help!!!

    it goes off by the load you put on it, so if you drive it real easy all the time it'll probably never come on, i've seen 'em go well over 10,000 miles before. i'd just change it every 3000
