Morning Forum,

please excuse my ignorance this is my first van, i purchased an iveco daily 29L9 SWB about a month ago and it has been parked on a slopped drive for a month went to start it up this morning as i am waiting for my insurance to start next month and i noticed 2 oil lights coming on. One went out after she fired into life the other started to flash (red oil can with drops) does this mean the van is low on engine oil??
I turned it off immediately as i don't want to ruin the engine, do you think it is safe to drive in 20 meters or so so i can get it on a flat bit of surface???

any advice would be brilliant.

thanks

tony

Hi Tony

You are correct, the flashing red light means that the oil sensor thinks that the oil level is too low. I suspect it's not really too low, just that with the van on a slope it gives a false reading, especially as the oil pressure light has gone out.

If it were mine I'd just drive it the 20 metres and then do a proper oil level check with the dip stick. If you're really concerned I'd suggest adding a little oil at a time to get the oil level up to the low mark on the dip stick and then move the van.

Cheers

Niall
