Hi all,

Ive got a problem with my oil, the light came on about a month ago so i topped it up to the max on the dipstick and now just a month later the oil is only just sitting on the min of the dipstick, this has been the case for months now. Just wondering if anyone can point me to any faults i could look out for and checks to do for it.

Also there is no oil leaking on the ground as ive put cardboard under it for a full week and theres not a spot of oil to be seen.

Thanks, Lewis.

went t do a compression test and found one of the spark plug holes filled with oil, is this normal? or could this be a symptom of any certain problem?

the oil in the plug well will be leaking down from there.. or you missed when filling with oil!
