i added a quarter of oil today. the gage went up to 1.5-2 on idle and just over 4 driving at 3500-4000rpm.But after driving and then on idle it was close to 0 again. there is no oil leak i checked under the car, so i think its just not enough oil. i intend to add another quarter of oil today and see what happens. The oil warning lamp comes on when the car is standing in a hill, which it did today, so i belive its just a question of more oil. These chain cars tend to use more oil than regular belts, i belive??
