Hi rla2012,

You mention having a fresh oil change, do you happen to know what oil and oil filter was used? A different weight oil and or an incorrect filter can cause the oil system to read inaccurately.


not sure ,we just bought the car from a private party as gift to help out family member. Car has 197,000 miles but seemed to run good. previous own said the oil had just been changed and a/c serviced
