Why is my "Oil
Level" Light flashing?
The oil level
light flashes at about the high level on the
dipstick and it's quite common for garages to fill
the oil to the high mark when changing the oil.
There's no need
to do anything as the oil level will eventually fall
to a level where the light will stop flashing.
If your Oil Light stays
constantly on (without flashing), you should top up your oil as soon as
possible - Do NOT drive your car with a low Oil Level!
