    Hi

    oil pressure lamp came on the other day, showing "min" on the dash, have filled up the oil in the car to the max level, but the light has not gone off? does it need to be reset or should it automatically realise?

    Thanks

    That will be level light and not pressure light. Mine flashed up and after a quick top up it went out on it's own. Hope this helps

    PRESSURE?

    I repeat...

    PRESSURE?

    If its oil PRESSURE, you need to shut the engine off... -IMMEDIATELY. Call for a tow vehicle. There is NO other acceptable option.

    If it's oil level, you need to learn the difference.

    Oh, and check oil level every other time that you open the gas cap.
