Porsche notes that engine oil level sensors have been replaced needlessly. After filling the engine with engine oil, the oil level must be measured using the on-board computer (confirmation check). If the confirmation check is not carried out, the “Check oil level” warning message will be displayed.
In addition, the “check oil level” warning message will be displayed if the oil level has not been checked after a period of time which varies according to the vehicle and driver (this time is calculated by the instrument cluster based on certain parameters such as driving style, average distance, number of cold starts, etc. This will differ among drivers.
Ask the customer whether he/she carried out a confirmation check after checking the oil level and explain how to do this correctly in accordance with the owner’s manual.
