    OK so the past few times I have gotten in my truck the maintenance required light has been blinking at me. I go to college in the middle of nowhere basically lol and I want to know my options before I absolutely have to take it to the stealership to get it checked out. Any ideas?

    It means your due to get an oil change....Its blinking cause its close to 5,000 mi interval...pretty soon it will stay solid when it hits 5,000 mi

    it shouldn't be blinking then. i had to get it changed a like maybe 1000 miles ago at a damn snappy lube. do you think they maybe didn't reset the computer or something?

    Exactly. Jiffy Lube is notorious for failing to do things they are supposed to...including changing the filter.

    You should read our owners manual, just for the fun of it, once.
