Question about 1992 Geo Metro
My boyfriend has a 1992 Geo Metro Hatchback. It has rebuilt engine in it (this is the third rebuilt engine) it has about 50,000 miles on the rebuilt engine. I was just in the vehicle and noticed the oil light came on. There is no users manual in the car and no information as to what type of oil I should add. Is the car safe to drive with the oil light on or is it ok to add oil so I don't blow the engine. Please help! Thanks. -Victoria
O.K,first don't drive the car with that light on unless absolutely neccessary(as in if you need to get somewhere safe or something).Second,yes you can add oil, 5W30,will be fine (does not matter which brand)but you need to make sure you don't add too much.Look for the oil dipstick under the hood to check the level of oil.There will be some kind of mark on the dipstick to show you where the level shhould be, down towards the end tip of the dipstick.There may be 2 dipsticks under the hood,1 for oil and 1 for transmission fluid so make sure yourr looking at the right one.Hope this helps.good luck.
