    Default Engine oil service indicator

    Well i thought my car didnt have the eco flex servicing. Its a 53 sri 2.2dti and when i brought it at 18 months old i read everybodys comments about pushing the mileage reset button with the engine off to see how long you have left before it needed servicing.

    Well i did that and nothing ever showed up in the tacho display, so assumed i didnt have ecoflex.

    Today however started my car up and a picture of an oil can with spanner through it showed up with 1.000 underneath it.

    So my last service back in December had 38000 miles on it, i changed the oil in June this year with 45000 miles so do i ignore what its telling me knowing that the oil was changed 3000 miles ago ( now 48000).

    Or bring forward its 3 year service? My total mileage should be only about 13000 miles from its last service if i wait till December.

    Don't know about miles, but when you don't have EcoServiceFlex, there still is EcoService which means that the interval for the next service is set to 30.000 km (on Opels). Changing oil doesn't reset this.
    You drove 13.000 miles - is that ca 21.000 km?

    Perhaps they forgot to reset the interval... the symbol states only that you are 29.000 km away from the last time the interval was reset.

    (Or it is Flex and you are speeding a bit to much )
