What are the symptoms of bad engine oil?
Fundamentally, unless it has gone too far, the average motorist is unlikely to know there is something wrong physically with it.
There may be an oil pressure warning on the dashboard that could indicate the oil isn’t circulating as well as it should due to a blocking filter or even a failing oil pump or there may be an oil level warning, which would indicate there isn’t enough oil in the engine. However both of these warnings are not really an indicator of the actual oil quality but can alert you to potential issues.
Therefore typical symptoms are;
- Engine oil level warning
- Engine oil pressure warning
- Service indicator lights
- Oil quality warning light
