    More than likely is that just needs topping but check first!

    5/30 VX specific fully synthetic. Have you checked the level on the dipstick. Might be worth not driving it until you top it up.

    Which one?

    The low oil pressure or low level warning light?

    The first one is more serious that the latter.

    If you've got low oil pressure, then the engine must be really low on oil for it to have starved the oil pump for it to trigger the pressure sensor.

    Either way, keep a regular check on your oil level Never rely on a light to tell you - unless it's a car that doesn't have a dipstick.

    Think I have a problem! Topped the oil up the other day but I am still getting the oil light on the dash after a few mile of driving. Checked the oil level again and its just below the maximum. Any ideas what the problem could be?

    Is it the light that usually goes off when you start the engine (pressure) or is it in the lcd display (level)?

    It's definatly definatly the engine oil level ( oil can with wavy line under). Thinking maybe a knackered sensor or something.

    Sounds like a sensor

    If it was me, I'd get it checked as soon as possible, just in case. Can't really take a risk with low oil level / pressure

    Ive got this problem but its only started since I changed the oil to fully synthetic, it also doesn't grip the dip stick well and it doesn't register on it!? Only get the yellow oil light on when doing motorway speeds doesn't come on around town?
