    What we do need is an oil pressure sensor like the on my Briggs Vanguard it simply shuts the engine down when you get low on oil.

    2013 V RIde -- The "dummy sensor" on my hour meter comes on 2 hours before service is due and stays on two hours after - a four hour window. It does not reset automatically when the service is done. I found this out when I read the manual. A nice feature, I suppose.

    Too bad about the bad service.

    I was told after a curtousy oil change at the dealer that the oil change light flashes 2 hours before the interval and 2 hours after no matter what. I paid for the oil, just not the labor.

    Is this a lie?

    That is a crazy useless thing......if you are out mowing all day the warning comes and goes.
