    Hello!

    I was driving yesterday when I saw this symbol in my instrument panel.
    Can someone explain to me what does it mean?? What do I have to do?
    My car is only 3 months old and has 4600Km

    Thank you

    Hi,
    You need to check your oil level, it needs topping up.

    Thank you.

    Is it normal doing this so soon, since my car is brand new and has only a few Km??

    Hi again,
    I've been told by a main stealer mechanic, that you can expect a new engine to use upto 1 litre every 600 miles. Anymore than that, and I'd have a chat to your main dealer about it.
    hope you feel a little better. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    If you're not checking your oil then I'd guess you haven't bothered with your tyres either. I'd recommend tyres at least weekly and oil at leat monthly.

    Frequent, general car checks keep the expensive Audi Doctor away /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Reading the dipstick is just as hard on the A3 V6 3.2 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
