i just finished changing the oil for the first time on my new to me 2007 Prostar 197. I finished changing the oil and when i restarted it the check engine code came on.

I have noticed the manual says to fill the filter half way and many people say the same thing here, but it is too late now.

How can i clear that code? Can anyone help me?

I would guess if you put the correct amount of oil in and run it for a little while the filter will fill up and the oil light should go off.
how long did you run it?

My low oil pressure alarm goes off every time I start the engine after I change oil. Mine is on my VDIG and I simply cancel it and the computer is happy.

I have never had a check engine alarm after an oil change. Weird.

Either way, the alarm will go away and clear itself after 3 complete warm-up/warm-down cycles. The dealer can also connect their laptop to the motor and tell you exactly what set the alarm off and they can clear it if their is no real issue.
