    Question Oil light warning opinions needed

    Hey guys, I took my car into the Audi garage to have the oil service done, this was 2600 miles ago, however the oil warning light has now come on to my surprise! Is this normal?? Just makes me wonder if Audi touched the car when I took it in.

    Hmmmmmm Have you checked the level??....Oil warning could also indicate pressure issue.......

    Audi state it is exceptable for an engine to use 1 litre per 800 - 1000 miles.....

    How often do you check the oil level and what engine is it?

    It's got to be worth going back and seeing what they say about it... You say the oil was changed 2600 miles ago but how long ago was that? For me to cover that mileage your talking nearly 6 months!!
