Cool Oil Light

I just got an oil light and indicating 1qt (low) I guess... time for oil change?

Also the oil change is cover under factory warranty? I have bov installed will they give me crap about it for doing oil change? Car is at 9xxx mile right now, just got the "ding" noise and scare the crap out of me

They might put it in the notes about your car. When I had my Dinan flash installed they wrote in that I had an aftermarket intake.

It's not time for a change, it's time for a top off.

You're one quart low on fluid. You need to add one quart of oil.
