Chevrolet Spark Owners Manual: Engine Oil Change

When the %CHANGE DIC message displays,
have the engine oil and filter changed within the next 1 000 km/600 mi. If driven under the best conditions, the engine oil life system may not indicate the need for vehicle service for up to a year.

The engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and the oil life system must be reset.

Your trained dealer technician can perform this work. If the engine oil life system is reset accidentally, service the vehicle within 5 000 km/ 3,000 mi since the last service.

Reset the oil life system when the oil is changed. See Engine Oil Life System on page 10-10.
