Oil usage

Post by Ian T » Sun Nov 24, 2019 10:55 am

Hello my Grandland x. Sport nav 2018 model petrol engine has for the first time required 2 x 1 later top ups since June any ideas it’s never indicated low oil before. It is serviced by Vauxhall and just gone over 20000 miles
Any ideas.

Hey,

Strange you've posted this as my Grandland X is behaving similar.

My oil light came on around 2 months ago (6 months after service,around 20k miles) and I topped up 200ml or so.

This morning I started up and the oil light was flashing, registered half way up the dipstick indicator. I turned off and on again and it was fine.

Maybe the cold weather is causing it?

Took my grand land for service they found an oil leak from the oil filter it was a good one but only after close inspection of my imprinted drive did I find pockets of clear oil
Let's see if that cures it's?
