My 307 has the usual PSA oil check which shows when the ignition is switched on - a row of symbols which, complete means oil level good. Got into it the other day and it showed one symbol and said oil low, Bother. Checked on dip stick - full so drove off, no leaks under the car. Booked into Pug agent for a check and now the fault has gone and the level reads correctly. Obviously I can check the oil level myself with the dipstick, as in the olden days! Is it worth chasing an intermittent , non-critical electrical fault and, if it is the sensor and/or wiring at fault what might a fix cost, please? (How long is a piece of string I guess!)
I regularly drive a couple of Pugs that have this. It's my experience that the difference between all bars and none, is the difference between max and min on the dipstick. I only bother double checking with the dipstick when they're down to two bars or less. The accuracy always amazes me.
Thanks PU and BTT. As an old bold pilot I like to have things working but not at any price and not when they are lazy man's backups to the old dipstick and eyeball syatem I am used to. I shall live with it!
Vauxhall has announced that its new city car will be called the Viva, reviving a much-loved badge. We look at ten classic car comebacks and wonder if the fans got what they wanted, or if they’d have been better off leaving the badge in the bottom drawer.
