1 in 5 Vehicles Have Dangerously Low Oil Levels



  • Previous research found nearly half of all cars require a top-up and that the oil level was dangerously low in 20% of cars. 

  • Furthermore, 47% of motorists don’t check their oil regularly enough and 27% don’t check their oil at all.

  • With many motorists not having their vehicle checked by a professional technician for an extended period, it's likely more cars than normal will be running with low oil levels.

  • Low oil can cause serious engine damage. At its most extreme damage can be so extensive that a complete engine rebuild is required

  • Examples of problems caused by low oil include:

  • ​Big end bearing failure, as they wear out and seize, they could eventually break and burst through the side of the engine block

  • Main crankshaft breakage

  • Camshaft damage
