When system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is required. A "CHANGE OIL" message will come on. Change engine oil as soon as possible within next 600 miles. It is possible that, if driving under best conditions, oil life may not indicate that an oil change is required for over a year. However, engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time system must be reset.
If system is ever reset accidentally, change engine oil at 3000 miles since last oil change.


Be careful not to reset oil life display accidentally at any time other than after oil is changed. It cannot be reset accurately until next oil change.

2013-15 Chevrolet Captiva Sport's Driver Information Center (DIC) and accelerator pedal functionality play crucial roles in enhancing the driving experience. The DIC, typically located on the instrument cluster, provides essential vehicle information such as fuel level, odometer readings, tire pressure, and engine temperature. It allows drivers to monitor key metrics without having to divert their attention from the road.

The accelerator pedal, a fundamental component of the vehicle's throttle system, controls the engine's power output based on the driver's input. It translates the pressure applied by the driver's foot into acceleration, allowing for smooth and responsive vehicle operation. Modern vehicles often feature electronic throttle control systems, which regulate engine power more precisely than traditional mechanical linkages.

So understanding how to interpret and navigate the DIC menus ensures drivers stay informed about their vehicle's status and performance. Meanwhile, proper use of the accelerator pedal contributes to efficient and enjoyable driving experiences. The owner's manual provides detailed instructions on utilizing these features effectively, optimizing vehicle performance, and ensuring a safe and comfortable driving environment for Captiva Sport owners.
