My BMW 318i E46 2002 model has an oil problem. After doing around 300 miles nonstop it shows the oil sign but there is no leak. What could be the problem? Where does it leak the oil?
Is it a yellow or red light on the instrument cluster? Depending on the color of the light and when it comes, it could just be the low oil level sensor has failed.
The light is a Yellow light. Thanks
If the yellow oil light comes on when you start the car and then turns off after 10-15sec, you need a new oil level sensor. If it stays on, then your just low on oil.
The light stays on until I add oil. What I don't understand is how the oil gets depleted without any leakage. Where does the oil leak from then? Kind regards.
