I solved this problem. simply start the car let it run a few min until oil pressure gets up. Then shut it off, remove the oil filter and suck the oil out of the housing. it will be about 1/2 liter. I put a new filter and ring on and problem fixed.

I changed my oil about 9 months ago and had since only put 1k miles on it since it was in the garage for almost 6 months.......should I change my oil again?

I'm with you, I kinda just took my carsoft and reset it, only drove about 1500 miles....its a garage queen for me!!!

yet, I'm gonna do a drain and refill, not even changing the filter. thinking of placing that LN engineering magnetic drain plug this time.

You should change it every year just before you put it away for storage. Do not run the car at all if stored for 6 months or so. Be sure to put it on a battery tender for your type of battery.

Hi there. I am new at the forum. I was looking at downloading the PET 2 Software for my DIYs and found it here: https://eobd21.wordpress.com/2019/03...rts-catalogue/, well I downloaded the RAR files but to open and merge them I need a password. Has anyone tried it?

I just changed my oil today, added 7qts, when i drove it and allowed the temperature gauge to reach its proper level andi checked the oil measurement it was still in the minimum yellow light. Does this mean i need to add more oil? i added about 7qts leaving about 1 qt left. Any help? suggestions?
