Also to know is, what does it mean when maintenance required light is on Toyota Corolla?
The “Maintenance Required”light on the Toyota Corolla is illuminated when thevehicle has traveled 4,500 miles after it has been reset. If your“Maintenance Required” light is lit butyou no longer need the reminder, you can reset the lightwith these steps.
One may also ask, how long can you go without an oil change? Most of the time if you are able to tolerate it,you can go about 5,000 to 6,000 miles over the recommendedmileage change. In fact, depending on the age of yourvehicle you could possibly go over about 7,000 to10,000 miles. In theory, you could even run your enginewithout oil if you wanted to.
Keeping this in consideration, how many miles after maintenance light comes on?
Once it reaches 5,000 miles again, the“MAINTENANCE REQUIRED” light will turn onagain. While the maintenance reminder system can be used asa reminder to the driver to have the vehicle serviced, it only beused as a guideline that only takes into account how the vehicle isdriven and under what driving conditions.
Why does my maintenance required light flash when I start my car?
It could be an oil change, a tuneup, or maybe you need anew timing belt. When the light begins to flash atstartup, you have about 500 miles or so to go before thenext scheduled service. The maintenance required light maybeing flashing 500 miles before your car is due forservice.
