When to Change Engine Oil (Saturn Oil Life System) on a Saturn L200. Your car has a computer system that lets you know when to change the engine oil and filter. This is based on engine revolutions and engine temperature, and not on mileage. Based on driving conditions, the mileage at which an oil change will be indicated can vary considerably. For the oil life system to work properly, you must reset the maintenance oil light every time the oil is changed. When the coumputer has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is necessary. A Change Engine Oil light will come on. Change your oil as soon as possible within the next two times you stop for fuel. It is possible that, if you are driving under the best conditions, the oil life maintenance may not indicate that an oil change is necessary for over a year. However, your engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the maintenance oil light must be reset. It is also important to check your oil regularly and keep it at the proper level. If the system is ever reset accidentally, you must change your oil at 3,000 miles (5 000 km) since your last oil change. Remember to reset the oil service light whenever the oil is changed.

    The gas pedal trick does not work on my 2003 l200. On mine there is a button in the underhood power distribution box labeled oil, key on engine off hold down the button for about 10 seconds return to the dashboard the light should be blinking at this point you can either kill the key and go home or start the car and see that the light does in fact shut off after a few moments.
