Can't Tell How Much Engine Oil is my Engine
I recently got my first Alfa, a 2005 58,000 mile 1.9 JLS GT about 4 months ago.
It seems to burn through oil so quickly, I have put two lot's of oil in and it had its 60k service.
I do lots of miles , done 4k in 4 months, but even so this seems excessive?
I'm concerned I might over fill it as I now have the oil presure low warning more frequently but when I check the dip I can't tell the level easily. There is a consistant amount on the bottom of the dip then small amount in the 'normal' zone but then the same amount kind of smeared 2/3 inches higher.
What do you guys think?
