Mine didn't but has dropped two bars since an oil and filter change 2000 miles ago. Should I be worried or looking for leaks?
I am assuming so, an Alfa specialist did the oil and filter change. It did drop one bar quite soon afterwards so it could be the fill was "just". I did have an oil leak previously that was fixed and they advised me that it wasn't leaking at all when it was serviced. I will have a check when the weather improves, not crawling under the car in the rain, I'll just put some oil in for the moment.Has the correct oil been used?
Has the correct amount been used?
The undertray hides oil leaks to a certain extent, get a torch, have a look.
Thanks, level is 3/4 of the way up the hatched area on the dipstick. I change the oil once a year at about 12kUse the dipstick rather than the dash gauge, I have not found them to give repeatable results.
I usually fill these engines to just over the halfway mark on the dipstick, rather than filling them up to the full as some of them have a tendency to drop a bit of diesel in the oil over time which bumps the level up.
I think 159/Brera owners should really think about shorter oil change intervals, half the ones I get in here have that notorious turbo siren noise and I'm sure turbo wear is only down to oil condition.
