I was wondering if anyone could help. I have a mini cooper 2008 model and I had a warning light appear on the dash...it was a picture of a fuel pump with a oil drop in it...it only appears when i switch on the car and disappears shortly after....is there any reason for major concern or do you think the car is still drivable.
Hope I posted in the right section.
Is it the oil pressure warning light you mean, warning lights will come on until the engine starts normally its like a self check? But have you checked the oil level on the dipstick? it will need topping up between services normally and it should be checked weekly and kept up between the two marks.
The oil the dealer puts in at the service, wont last until the next one, unless you do very very few miles, without checking it.
The oil pressure light will be on when you first turn the key but before you start it (because there is no oil pressure with
the engine off), but should go off within a second after cranking and starting the car.
