: 95 525i - Engine oil low

09-01-2008, 04:45 PM
I recently saw the "Engine Oil Low" message on the cluster readout. I immediately shut it off.
Since it was due for a change anyway, I changed the oil and filter; what seemed to be 6 quarts or so did come out, so the engine oil low message was strange.
After a full change, the message still appeared. Anyone have a suggestion what it could be? Pressure sending unit?
TIA, Harry

You can ignore the low oil message if you verify the oil level is okay with the dipstick. You probably have a bad oil level sender.

The level sensor is part 11.
I'm not sure what kind of signal it sends but there is a chance that it could be a wiring problem.
