Hi there.

I stared my car today and got a warning message saying "Oil Level Low - Visit Dealer" I checked the dipstick and the oil level seemed ok it is visible between Low and high on the dipstick a bit under half way. once the car was running the message no longer shows, only on start up?

Has anyone had this message? I take it its just a standard low oil message?
I just wondered why it said visit dealer?

My car is at stage 4 from Lichfields so was not sure if it used different spec oil,
But I checked my last service invoice which has all been done there too, and it says MOBIL 1 0w40, was used,

So I went to Halfords and checked the oil and it said I needed Mobil 1 new life 0w40 is this the right oil?

Also where should I aim to fill the oil to on the dipstick?,

Any advice would be great thanks

I use Mobil 1 New Life 0w 40, fully synthetic.
Think Mobil just changed the name slightly & added 'New Life'.

Regarding the message, you don't need to visit the dealer. Just run it up to temperature, make sure you park up on a level surface & give it 5 - 10 minutes, then check it.
I'm sure it has to be something like 9mm below the top 'H' hole. Just top it up to this level, adding a bit of oil each time & checking. Make sure not to over fill & you'll be ready to go again!
