hello,do be very careful,as without oil,you will destroy your engine within a minute or less! get some one to re-check your dipstick,is it the correct one for your car?leave engine off for a few minutes,make sure your vehicle is on level surface and not uphill or downhill ! it could be that your dipstick is exceptionally dirty,or your engine oil\'s exceptionally clean (new,and recently changed)that you are unable to discern accurately the presence or the level to any reasonable degree,get a local garage to do a pressure check with an auxiallary gauge to asess the real answer to this mystery.hope this helps,regards.
The warning means you're low on oil and you need to top off the oil. Add about 1/4 quart of oil to the engine and check the dipstick. Add oil in 1/4 quart increments until the dipstick indicates the level correct. The dipstick on this car is hard to read, if you're uncertain about the level, just add oil in 1/4 quart increments until the warning goes off. If it goes off, then comes back after only a short time, then add 1/2 quart, and so on. These cars go through about a quart of oil every 5000 - 10000 miles normally (depending on various factors).

you may have a sensor bad in the crankcase that detects oil level.
I would disregard as long as the oil is changed regularly, and you have no pressure problems and the level on the dipstick is within the cross hatches or between the low and high range.
manual gear boxes do not have a dipstick , there is a bung plug on the side of the box , about 1/2 way up. to check oil level,umdo that bung plug the oil level is the bottom of that hole.when at correct level oil will just drip over the lip.
should be towards the front of the car yello whandle
ENGINE OIL INSPECTION
1. Position the vehicle on level ground.
2. Warm up the engine to normal operating temperature and stop it.
3. Wait for 5 minutes.
4. Remove the dipstick and inspect for oil level and condition. Verify that the oil level is within the F and L marks on the dipstick.
o Add or replace oil if necessary.
5. Verify that the dipstick O-ring is installed as shown, then reinstall the dipstick.
Stop running the engine. Check the engine oil level. It should have a yellow colored handle, pull it out and check at the bottom of the stick for oil. If it is within the range on the dipstick, you need some engine work done. If you don't have any oil on the stick, or it is lower than the range, just add more oil, a little at a time until you get it back within range.
There is a small bolt/plug in the transmission above the pan that needs to be removed. The fluid will run out if it's overfilled. The transmission needs to be at room temperature or a little warmer to check the level.
The fluid level screw is intended to be used for diagnosing a transaxle fluid leak or resetting the transaxle fluid level after service that involves a loss of fluid. Inspect: The fluid level should be checked when the transaxle is near Room temperature or at 40°C (104°F). CAUTION: Removal of the fluid level screw when the transaxle fluid is hot may cause injury. Use care to avoid contact of transaxle fluid to exhaust pipe.
The engine must be running when the transaxle fluid level screw is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fluid level screw. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid. WARNING: Do not turn the engine off with the fluid level screw removed as you can be injured by hot transaxle fluid being expelled out of the fluid check hole.
Let vehicle idle for three to five minutes with accessories off.
Move shift lever through all gear ranges, pausing three seconds in each range.
Place shift lever in Park. Important: Vehicle must be kept level on the hoist.
Raise vehicle on hoist.
Place oil container under fluid level screw.
Remove the fluid level screw with the engine running at idle.
Fluid level should be at the bottom of the fluid check hole. Because the transaxle operates correctly over a range of fluid levels, fluid may or may not drain out of the fluid check hole when the fluid level screw is removed. If fluid drains through the fluid check hole, this transaxle may have been overfilled. When fluid stops draining, the fluid level is correct and the fluid level screw may be installed. If fluid does not drain through the fluid check hole, the transaxle fluid level may be low. Proceed to ADDING TRANSAXLE FLUID.
With the engine running, add fluid at the vent cap location in half liter (1 pint) increments until fluid drains through the fluid check hole. Allow the fluid to finish draining through the fluid check hole.
