: On my car the oil light does not go out right away after the change. Bentley mentions this and the procedure is to bleed out the air in the canister. Keep that one in the back of your mind.

Adnan,

question about the above paragraph: how do you bleed out the air in the canister? I get messages from the OBC telling me my oil level is low when according to the dipstick it clearly is not. After reading your post, I was thinking that trapped air might be my culprint as well.

TIA,

Rocky
