Low Oil in Your Car: Symptoms

Dashboard lights
When your vehicle doesn’t have enough oil, it can’t prevent metal-on-metal contact, flush out contaminants, or keep the system cool, and that can mean anything from complex repairs to New Orleans breakdowns.

That’s why we’ve put together this quick list of low oil in car symptoms. If you notice one or more, it’s time to visit our service center.


The Oil Warning Light Comes On

If your warning light turns on, you have low oil pressure, and that probably means you need a top-up. When there isn’t enough oil, a sensor picks up the deficit and lets you know. Even if the oil warning light only flickers, you need to have things checked.


Your Hear Knocking Noises

When there’s been low oil for quite a while, your engine’s components and parts will lack lubrication. The increase in fiction can loosen engine rods. When they start getting thrown around, you might hear knocking sounds that shouldn’t be ignored.

You Smell Burning

Burning smells are never good. When low engine oil is to blame, it’s because metal components are making regular contact, creating heat your engine isn’t able to handle. While serious fires are extremely unlikely, an unpleasant burning smell may still be produced that will eventually make its way to the cabin.


Your Start Spending More on Fuel

If your engine doesn’t have enough oil, it won’t run as efficiently. As such, a drop in fuel economy is one of the most common low engine oil symptoms. Without enough oil to lubricate its parts, the engine will need to work harder and you’ll need to pay more at the pump.


Your Engine Starts Overheating

Overheating is one of the clearest car-needs-oil symptoms. Metal-to-metal contact will raise the temperature in your engine to the point where it needs to shut itself off, so you could find yourself stuck on the highway between Marrero and Gretna.
