Just bought a 2001 Clio 172 from my local Renault dealer and they were brilliant but I've had it two weeks now so I thought I'd check my oil and it was half an inch above max, should I have some drained or is it ok?
Told dealer, he freaked, said take it in and oil will be sorted ASAP. Have driven the car for two weeks now and had one long, hard thrash, car seems a little slower than it was but it may be me getting used to it. Dealer is brilliant, nothing is too much trouble. Fingers crossed.
It doesn't instill confidence in the dealership if they can't even get a simple thing right like filling up the oil to the correct level does it . Its not exactly rocket science , thats what the dipsticks for at the end of the day , to check the level .
what i did was drain the oil all of it and replaced the filter and filled back up with new oil but i overfilled mine really bad as i said schoolboy error on my part took it for a long drive then not raging it just sensible
but was 2 late my rings went dont panic like ,
if u aint got white smoke out the back of u exhaust just take it for a long spin use up the oil or just empty a little out should be fine
my astra h sri uses a fair bit of oil on long runs fact and its a 55 plate m8
my clio does not smoke at all
i was refering 2 previous experiences with a rover convertable i used 2 own which was overfilled with oil hence the white smoke and we wernt talking small amountsof smoke im talking nobody can see amounts of smoke caused by a simple overfill of oil
