It may still well be a sensor, but do the basics first to get them out of the way.

Sensor is definitely a possibility but topping up the oil and trying it is an easier first option.

That'll be it then I suspect.


BTW, Imgur is a good, free image host that you don't even need an account for - and it's specifically set up to allow sharing to forums.

Go to the imgur page
drag and drop your pictures on to the page
wait 'til they upload
hover your mouse over the image, a down arrow appears - hover over that
pick "get share links"
copy and paste the code in "BBCode (Forums)"

Or you could just post the link to the url with all the pictures on it.

No account needed.

Multiple files can be added at once and files can be added to the same location - if you still have your uploaded picture(s) open, just drag and drop more on to the same page.

[pictures size reduced for forum sanity]

You’re joking you mean after draining the oil almost nothing came out!!!

Don’t get me wrong but for a full member of this forum you should know better than that.
You could have so easily have destroyed your 4 year old engine, that’s unbelievable my friend.
With a cold engine it takes maximum 10 minutes to check and fill it.

We all know that our engines can be oil burners.
I better stop writing now. My engine has just passed the 150,000 KLM’s mark l know to check the oil

That's not my experience - I've owned my C1 for 8 years from 2010 and it has never needed the oil to be topped up between annual services (I drive "enthusiastically" and do the POWER checks regularly).

This contrasts with the other car I owned from 2006 to 2016 (Audi RS4) which would use around 1/2 litre per thousand miles.
