alright now ive had my mach 1 for about 4 going on 5 months now and i just hit about 1500K ive put on it, and the service engine light pops on me today, now i gave the car an oil change a week after i bought the car(gave it the royal purple treatmeant) so i know it doesnt need it, so how do i get rid of the light, i know some cars you hold the odometer button for four seconds then turn the key on, or put the key right before actual engine ingition do the same thing and turn it on, but i havent tried those things yet, just wandering how to do it so i can reset it incase those dont work

take it to your local parts store and have them scan the code then clear it.

tell us what the numbers are that he gives you.

it will be a P then four numbers IE : P1000
from there we can help you find out why it went off in the first place.

take off the neg battery cable for 5 minutes then reattach it.

the light will go off.

I advise you to look at your car soon though.. did you scrape the old gasket
off the block before installing the new oil filter?
any leaks?
did you put enough in?

what's your oil pressure look like??
