Hey everyone! Just changed my oil on my 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio. It was a fairly simple process. Needed to Jack the car up, then took the cars little undercarriage cover off and there was the oil pan and filter. After all set in done I’ve done some research and found nothing but conflicting...
I to have to 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio (Sport version), yet these steps unfortunately didn't work for me as I just tried it myself multiple times.
Per what @fast_dave suggested, I guess I'll be buying the Multiecuscan next year when I come back from vacation as I'll be heading out the states for a month starting this December, but I'll be taking my 2000 Lexus ES300 instead.
As-in slower than I would ever press the gas otherwise...take a half second to press down, then up. Then lift your foot and wait a half second before starting the next one. The first time I did it it didnt work. I sat there and played with the timing of the pedal presses until it did.
Also be sure the pedal goes all the way down. If you press the pedal at the top, that doesn't happen. There is about 1/8inch of movement the pedal does at the base. You must press that in. Foot flat on the gas, press down all the way.
Don't forget to shut the car off completely - without ever starting the engine. This is crucial. If you press the pedal down then start the car it doesn't work. Must shut off power to the car. Then start the engine to check.
I'm doing just that with no luck. I basically get inside my Alfa, close the driver door, press the START/STOP button (without pressing the gas pedal), the car comes on (not the engine) and then the amount of oil bar comes up on the odometer screen, follow by "Scheduled Maintenance Expired" message, then tried pressing the pedal ALL THE WAY down (I even feel like a clip on the pedal when it goes all the way down) slowly 5 times within 10 seconds. Repeated these steps multiple times possibly even going beyond just a bit over 10 seconds the fact of pressing the pedal very slowly, but regardless how slow or how fast and how hard I push the pedal down, the message still remains after shutting the vehicle down from the START/STOP button, and then normally powering the vehicle on afterwards (Brake + STOP/START button).
I even tried these same steps as soon as I turn the car on (not engine) before the oil bar and "Scheduled Maintenance Expired" message comes up.
I will try this patiently in the next week or so. This isn't for the expired maintenance signal but for the message I have not yet recd. I am a 10/17 build thus reason everything was easier without requiring the SGW bypass.
