Panic sets in and you’re thinking “is that the light that means the engine is going to fall out of my car?!” Fear not, you drive a Subaru. That kind of thing doesn’t happen with these beauties. That being said, a little education goes a long way and you really should be the empowered vehicle owner that we want you to be. Lets get our education on and dive into the warning lights and how to know if your car needs a quick trip to Subaru of Niagara.
TODAY WE ARE TALKING: ENGINE LOW OIL LEVEL WARNING LIGHT
The ENGINE LOW OIL LEVEL WARNING light indicates that the engine oil level has decreased below the lower acceptable limit. When you start you engine, the low oil level warning light should illuminate briefly and then turn off. If it doesn’t turn off, the oil level is either too low or there is a problem with the oil level sensor system.
If you find your dashboard lit up with the engine low oil level warning, safely park the car on a level surface, check your oil and refill if necessary. If this doesn’t solve the problem, your reliable service team at Subaru of Niagara will be happy to have a look and fix it, making sure you leave happy and safe.
