Engine oil help!

Hey guys!

I just realized that the oil level on my 147 is minimal. At home I have some Mobil 10w40 motor oil. Do you think I can add a bit of that oil to the engine or do I have to buy Selenia 10w40 (the oil the car has right now)?

I would be more afraid of leaving it in its current dry state, rather than adding a litre or so of Mobil...after all, ratings the same..!

Oils will mix so a 10w-40 preferably ACEA A3/A5 would be the best quality.

Re: Engine oil help!

This is correct but i would recommend not to leave your car that much without oil. It doesn't make it happier, only you poorer (in money) if your motor blows.
