Oil Life System

Many of today's vehicles are equipped with an Oil Life System (OLS). This system interprets your vehicle's speed and engine temperature and continuously monitors operating conditions—which helps determine when it's time for an oil change.

The OLS monitors a number of conditions, including engine revolutions, engine temperature, and how many miles were driven to let you know precisely when to come in for an oil change. As soon as you notice your vehicle's OLS light illuminate, you will know it's time for service.

Checking your oil level

Even with an OLS, it's important to keep track of your oil level. Always consult your Owner's Manual for the proper procedure to check your oil level. You'll get a more accurate dipstick reading by following those instructions.

Oil change warning signs

When the Cadillac CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message displays, service is required for your vehicle as soon as possible. The engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and the OLS must be reset. The Certified Service team at Cadillac South San Francisco will do this whenever you bring your vehicle in for a Cadillac oil change at our Bay Area dealership.

If your vehicle is not equipped with an OLS, consult the Service and Maintenance Schedule contained within your vehicle Owner's Manual for proper change intervals. You can also feel free to contact our Service Center if you need help determining whether your vehicle is in need of an oil change. Our prices for a synthetic oil change near San Francisco are very competitive, and we offer rotating service specials that can help you save even more!
