Got this light on my dash on the way to work this morning...
Car details: 2004 1.8 LS Z(X)18XE engine with 96K on the clock give or take. Last oil change comming up on a year ago (16K miles ago)
I am assuming it means the oil is low (which is wiered as I checked it a few weeks ago and it was about half way between the lines in the dipstick when cold).... I am due an oil change anyway.
So I will check this tonight and see if it needs topping up and top it up as appropriate.
Now first my questions is... Can I drive it home to fill it up?
I have a journey of about 30 miles of which 25 of them are motorway. I only drove about 4 miles this mroning when then light came on so I am not worried about that. So would 34 / 35 miles of driving with this light on be safe (I will drive it carefully without excessive reving etc).
My second question is... If the oil level is ok is this likley to be a sensor issue and if so how do I fix it?
I changed the oil sensor on a 1.4 tigra years agio (dead easy to be honest). Is it just the same for the Vectra?
Finaly, is there anything else you all think I should check / do?
