  • Engine oil low - check oil level

    Hi everyone,



    Recently I keep getting this message, but when I check the oil level it is fine. Always happens when engine is warm. First time it happened was couple of hundred milkes after its first service. They couldn't find anything when I booked it back in. Now its happening more frequently and its due its second service.



    Could it be a sensor that's gone or just one of the insignia's characteristics?

    Update:



    In to Vauxhall again for more investigation into frequent oil level low warnings. No trouble codes set in ECU. Full system reset conducted (meaning I have lost the remap now and will have to get it put back on after the ECM callibration update comes out eventually). Still no joy and warnings still appearing. Now they say it must be the pressure switch in the sump sticking, so new pressure switch and sump ordered - apparently you have to replace sump when it is removed to get at the pressure switch??



    Will update when parts ordered and goes back in.

      Seems daft that you have to buy a sump to get a switch .



      My thoughts too Andy
