oil oil oil

ok so just noticed that my dipstick is just touching the min mark. now i had a filter and oil change 3 months ago, so i'm guessing that either it wasn't filled up to max or its leaking or a bit of both. i'm starting to get a burning oil smell when driving but can't see any visual leaks, and nothing on the floor when parked.

but back to q's, mines a 1998 V6 with 125k on the clock. the only oil i've got to hand is 10W 40 mineral. would using this to top up be a big should i wait and pop to the shops in the morning?

Re: oil oil oil

If it's touching the min mark then I wouldn't worry - there's plenty of oil in there. Wait 'til you get some proper stuff.
