    TSU, what did you do to get updated information about the new oil life? I don't think the gauge sensor it’s so smart that recognizes the new oil?

    Oil change Monitor - reset

    Chapter 10, Page 12. Oil Life % monitor reset directions are located here in the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze owners manual. If your owners manual is in the glove box, remember you can read the manual page by page at the Chevrolet.com web site, under the "Owners" column.

    OP - Great post. What oil filter did you use, and where did you get it?

    Autozone sold me an STP S10246.

    I happened to use the Wix because it is what they had in stock. Got it at O'Reilly auto parts. I think it was ~$8.

    I just did my first oil change at 2,816 miles using OP's instructions and pictures - it worked perfectly. The hardest part was buying the 24 mm socket and the proper extension, since it wasn't part of my toolset. I do recommend that you use a funnel when draining the oil, - it rushed out really fast, and the funnel saved my panel from getting drenched.

    Thank you TSURacing!!!! You rock!!
