Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor™
Your vehicle has an Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor that determines when you should change the engine oil based on how you use your vehicle. By using several important factors in its calculations, the monitor helps reduce the cost of owning your vehicle and reduces environmental waste at the same time.
This means you do not have to remember to change the oil on a mileage-based schedule. Your vehicle lets you know when an oil change is due by displaying a message in the information display.
The following table provides examples of vehicle use and its impact on oil change intervals. It is a guideline only. Actual oil change intervals depend on several factors and generally decrease with severity of use.

When to expect the OIL CHANGE REQUIRED Message  
Interval   Vehicle Use and Example  
7,500–10,000 mi (12,000–16,000 km)   Normal  
Normal commuting with highway driving   No, or moderate, load or towing   Flat to moderately hilly roads   No extended idling  
5,000–7,500 mi (8,000–12,000 km)   Severe  
Moderate to heavy load or towing   Mountainous or off-road conditions   Extended idling   Extended hot or cold operation  
3,000–5,000 mi (5,000–8,000 km)   Extreme  
Maximum load or towing   Extreme hot or cold operation
