Re: [T3] Oil light

<x-charset iso-8859-1>So how low does the oil have to be before the oil light comes on? I thought
that as long as it's between the lines, you're OK.

I once had an old Volvo 340 that had an oil leak the size of the Niagara
Falls. The oil light came on at about the same time as the engine started
making clicking noises. I actually drove like that to the nearest service
station, and filled up the oil. The car lasted for a couple of thousand
miles before I finally junked it because it's wierd rubber band transmission
was porked.
