2000 Pontiac Grand Am mileage: 56,500. I had the oil changed at about 3,000 or 4,000 miles. I don't recall exactly. The first oil change is supposed to be sooner than the others I understood. Now my car is at 56,500 miles and I have a light on my dash that blinks oil change all the time. I know that isn't a big deal. The annoying part is, whenever I start the car and get a few blocks down the road, I hear this ding ding ding! Have you heard anything about this most annoying feature?

The computer in most late model GM cars keeps records of when service is due by lighting the oil change light. The records are based on driving habits. The frequency of service depends on how many short trips are taken verses long trips. Once the car is serviced, turn the key on (do not start), depress the gas pedal to the floor three times and the computer will be reset.
