Hi, And yes it is. When the check engine light comes on, normally it indicates a problem in the emissions system of you're auto. Its a good idea to check fluid level to make sure they are where they are supposed to be if it does come on. What you can do though is drop by your local Auto-Zone parts store and for no charge they will hook up there OBD-2 meter to you're computer which is located just left of your steering wheel, below your dash. They just plug it in. It will read out a code that tells you what is going on. They can then erase it and it may never come on again.This is you're best bet. My light is on now due to an emissions problem, and will go off by itself for months before coming on again. I can't find anything wrong with it. Try this and keep me posted.

Why do I have massive engine oil loss, with no external leak?

Here is an article explaining a common engine failure with this particular engine:

Logic would tell you that even though a leak down test was performed, that if you do not have oil in the coolant, or any kind of oil leak, that the oil is going out the tailpipe.....

Oil light keep coming on even when oil level is ok

Try replacing the sensor. They are not usually very expensive.
When the engine is COLD! Remove the wire to the sensor and unscrew it. A deep socket will be easiest. The hole will only leak a small amount of oil. Wipe the excess oil out of the hole and fit the new sensor. Turn it until it is tight but DON'T force it. Reconnect the wire and clean away any spilt oil.

When i check the oil level in my huyndai avante xd 2006 i found the the oil level is down , no smoke or leak from the car .. What's the Problem ?

All motors will use a small amount of oil over a period of time. It is used by boiling off in the sump from blow by around trhe rings and ring gaps, smoke vapour through the manifold system and general leaks around the engine or sump gasket. It is necessary to lubricate the rings as they are moving. However having said that consumption in excess of 1 liter pre 5000 miles would bear investigation as it will point to engine wear or leaking oil seals

Oil light on 2006 Chevy Aveo but oil levels are fine

The oil warning light is for oil pressure, not the oil level in the engine.
Your owner's manual will explain it in detail.
You need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge or replace the oil pressure sending unit to see if it is faulty.

My 2006 bmw 325i is having problems with the oil sensor, it indicates it needs one liter of oil very often I refill it once but then 4 days after it said it needed oil again and I dont want to put any more...

check the oil level using the dipstick in the engine you may just have a bad sensor that needs to be repaced, however if it is in fact getting low you may want to have the engine checked for comprssion leaks you may be burning the oil or it is seeping out of the gaskets in small amounts.

The Oil light came on my 1998. It has no oil. What mihgt be the problem? Its a V6 Honda.

When was the last time you had the oil level checked. All engines use oil, its part of their design so you need to check the oil level at least weekly. Next, if the oil has leaked out, open the hood and look all over the engine for signs of obvious leakage. Oil stains or small pools of oil on or in crevices on the engine. Look under the car where it is usually parked, leaking oil drips downwards so you will see oil stains on your driveway if it has leaked out. Look under the car to see if there is oil stains on the chassis. All of these are pointers to a leak. If you can see signs of leakage, top up the level using the dipstick and take the car to your local garage. They can clean off the oil, run the engine and see where the leak is coming from. If you cannot see signs of leakage, it may be that the oil level was not kept up to the mark. If you recently had the vehicle serviced, did they refill the engine with the correct amount of oil..And using the wrong grade of oil is as bad as a low oil level. If the level is correct, check the oil pressure switch. This is a small switch that monitors the oil pressure and they do fail. If it has failed, it will need to be replaced as these switched are not repairable. If the vehicle has an oil level switch, again, it could be a failed switch so replace it. I am not familiar with this engine so I am unable to point you to these switches but your local garage will locate them very quickly for you..

2006 BMW 530i with a slow/small oil leak.

Common oil leaking areas on that engine is the plastic lid on the oil filter,and the gasket in between the oil filter adapter and the engine block.I would suggest you take it to a qualified shop and have them diagnose the oil leak.

How much New oil should i put in to my 1992 Suzuki Sierra 4x4 Cheers Neil B

First make sure your drain plug and filter are installed and tight, then add 2 liters of oil and check to see if there is any showing on the dipstick. Add one liter at a time and recheck the dipstick. Bring the level up to the full mark on the dipstick. Now start the engine and observe the oil light(turn off) or pressure gauge(pressure goes up) then turn off engine. If neither happens after about 10 seconds, shut off engine and check for leaks or other malfunctions. If all is O.K. then recheck oil level on dipstick. It should be somewhere between the upper and lower level, usually indicated by crosshatch marking. Add oil to bring oil level to full mark. Small amount at a time. Most small vehicles only take about 3.5 to 4 liters.

2000 Neon with small amount of oil leaking when parked.No oil leaking when put up on rack. Drives car around town seems fine, Drive car for a longer trip and no oil shows up on dipstick. Oil is added and...

When u run your car for a long of time make sure the oil drops down to the oil pan with engine off for about 10 minutes then check oil. If you stop and then immediately u check the oil, oil level will show low, because some oil is at the cylinder head. I think the oil seals for the crankshaft are worn, their one infront of the engine and one behind, where the motor is connected to the transmission. When the head gasket is not good you see oil in the the coolant or coolant in oil and white smoke comes out and car doesn't have enough power, because there is not good compression
