Infocenter oil level indicator - is it trustworthy?
How reliable is the Infocenter display of the oil level (the one showing up when starting the engine)?
Mine was showing full for the past month, then suddenly (on Saturday) it was showing full when I left home and 10 km later it went one bar below full? It stayed that way since, which makes me wonder if my car's drinking oil (might have a turbo problem, says the local stealer) or the sensor's gone AWOL?
Also, on the first oil change I did after buying the car, the dipstick read maximum yet the display was showing two bars below Max - it then stayed that way for 2500 km.
Dipstick level appears to be fine and I can't see any obvious leaks.
