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 web site, under the "Owners" column.
"Burping" oil stream..........

TSUracing, when you mentioned in your oil change presentation that the oil would "burp" when the drain plug is removed....I don't recall ever seeing that happen. Yesterday I serviced our cruze and just as soon as the plug was removed I remembered your comment and suggestion to vent the crankcase by removing oil fill cap or at least pulling up on the dipstick a little. It is strange to see the oil stream burp like that. I wonder what this engine is using for a positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) system? Interesting! Thanks again for your picture guide to the 1.4 oil change. Nice Job! :)
