Fuel In Oil Warning Light

7 posts in this topic

Sorry if this has been posted before but i did a search and as you cannot search for OIL as theres not enough letters it was abit of a pain.

Ive had my 2011 TDCI Zetec S for 9 months now and just clocked 6500 miles.

Just had a warning light pop up an oil can with a wavy line underneath in orange.

Checked the manual and it says its fuel in the oil. Also at the same time though was a message saying 'Change oil at the next service' or something similar.

Now should i get this checked out or just wait until ive had the car 1 year and take it for its 1st service??

thanks

It's not fuel in oil, it's "oil quality"

Your car is 9 months from registration, but on ETIS when was it built? I suspect the oil in the engine is 1 year old, which may trigger the message/light.

well for the first 3 months, which i am guessing it was between build and registration, it won't have been driven, so in reality the oil has only had 9 months of working use, so i would wait until your first annual service.
