2002 Chevrolet Corvette: Needs Oil

December 07, 2010


While I had our 2002 Chevrolet Corvette for my Buttonwillow trip, the "Check Oil Light" came on. And when that light comes on you can't check your trip or odometer. The odometer comes on for a second when you start up the car and then gets wiped away by "Chevrolet" and "Corvette" and then the oil warning light stays there no matter which buttons you press.

Fortunately as editor John DiPietro noted back in March, pouring oil in the large oil fill opening is a cinch. The only minor issue is that twisted dipstick. Makes it a bit of a bother to try and wipe away the oil for a clean read.

Here it is showing that the Vette was down a quart.
