So i found a real easy way to fix this problem.
Bmw low oil light.
The sensor should warn you if the oil level inside the oil pan drops below the safe level.
I called the place that did my oil change and they said that they only put 6 quartz of oil in.
Low oil pressure may get sufficient oil to the main bearings and pistons lower half of the engine to allow them to operate ok but the upper engine may be totally starved and you could destroy the valve train and expensive timing components.
This can cause the most damage in the fastest way and kill the engine.
Of course there are 3 potential causes oil leaks and oil consumption that cause oil loss and faulty oil level sensors most common on older models.
This light indicates you are at least 1 quartliter low on engine oil.
When i start my bmw 320i its looks perfectly fine used it for like 30 mins 1 hour a day but whenever i turn off the engine and remove the key to the ignition lock the engine oil pressure.
The difference is this time my engine oil pressure too low and drivetrain malfunction sensors went off.
A total loss of oil pressure will result in the engine seizing up in short order.
I had my routine oil change done and went on about my day.
Bmw low oil level sensors have replaced traditional dipsticks bmw has eliminated the oil level dipstick from under the hood replacing it with a sensor in the oil pan the shaded part in the figure.
The dreaded oil pressure lightdefinitely the light i do not want to see.
This answer is applicable for many bmws in addition to the one listed below.
Q recently this began occurring on my 2001 330cic every time i start the engine.
This light does not mean you are due for an oil change that is a common misconception amongst new bmw owners.
So i have a 2013 328i x drive that just recently hit 101000 miles.
