Oil help

Post by Kelly941 » Sun Apr 30, 2017 11:21 am

Hi guys, I've got a 1.4i and for the past week the oil indicator has been flashing up but I've been cancelling it, checked yesterday and its now on 0%. My question is, can I just refill it or do I have to book it in and get them to do it instead?

the oil indicator is telling you that the car is due its service. it does NOT measure how much oil is left in the engine

Couple of things to point out here: first of all, as has already been mentioned, the oil life does not indicate how much oil
is available. To do this, you lift the bonnet and check the dipstick (I do it every couple of weeks, look at the other levels too).
When it comes to warranty continuity, as long as you buy the oil and filter from Vauxhall, prices are quite competitive, there's
no problem. Easytronic going great, no issues at this time.
