    confused Oil warning Light...

    Simple one this - what exactly does this mean?? Started coming on sometimes, goes off again when engine is restarted. No lo pressure warning, or warnings on the colour GID. Hard to see oil level as it was changed by me recently and is still fairly see-through, but if it does mean that the level is low, as I expect it does, then why doesn't this symbol appear in the manual anywhere....?

    You will probably find that your oil level is on the minimum. Top it up as soon as you can.

    I shall top it up and see if it comes back on, thanks... I just find it odd that the manual wouldn't tell you what the warning messages mean, although it is obvious it's something to do with the oil...

    Still, it is Vauxhall after all....

    It does in mine (both my Jul 03 and Feb 07 editions).

    On page 38 of both books.

    Mine displayed this symbol, but there was no limp home mode, and the oil level was low. A quick top up and all was well again. If the pressure warning light comes on, then you have got far more serious concerns.

    I topped it up and it hasn't come on since, but I still can't find it in my manual anywhere, and page 38 in mine is nothing to do with warning signs.......

    I've seen it twice - once way back when on 3k miles after which I had them do an oilchange anyway (never liked the idea of doing 20k on the original stuff!), and again on 29k miles, which is the first time I actually needing to top up the oil - both times the dipstick level had dropped to 1/3 up from the bottom mark. In the last case I also noticed a slight drop in performance, which went away on topping up, but nothing like a limp-mode - I've had experience of the limp mode in Cavs before, and it's just not funny when the engine dips to about 1500rpm all of a sudden, just because a bit of dirt gets on a sensor!

    That's different to my car, it has a seperate light for that up to the right side of the dash. It comes on with the rest of the lights before you start the engine.

    if it goes out when you start the engine, it means it is due a service.
