Oil Level - 1.9JTDM
I have a 159 1.9JTDM. Recently the oil level indicator has been fluctuating between half full and nothing.
This typically happens after a long drive. Before I set off I've physically checked the oil and it's about half full. The dash indications seem to back this up.
So, after a long drive I come to a stop and let the engine idle for a few mins and turn off. I then head off for some food or something and come back 10 mins later. Then when starting I get the dash indicator telling me oil level is low (non-existent).
What are the mechanics behind this?
Also, how often have people had to top-up the oil with the 1.9JTDM? Do they find it drinks oil a bit? I've done 10k miles and its now @ half, from nearly full.
