    Japanese to English translation

    I recently acquired a Japanese import car.
    In the last few days the info display has been bringing this notice up on engine start.

    I believe the bit in orange says "engine oil"
    Can anyone help translate the rest?
    Sorry about the crap photo.

    Thanks in advance.

    Engine Oil
    You have reach the set distance (milage?).
    Press the information switch and select maintenance information,
    you can set (something)
    OK

    Without a little context, that is what it says. Japanese can ignore subjects and objects and so direct translations become a little odd.

    You are a champ, thanks Shashin.

    I have a buddy who is learning to speak/read/write all Japanese but he is still learning. He was close on a few bits.

    Again, I appreciate your help. I do have a translation document for the rest of the system so I will be good from here.

    Cheers
