Dirty oil?

Postby Dan » Mon Apr 23, 2007 2:43 pm

Just doign a quick pre-NCT check on my car earlier, and noticed that the oil was dark brown already, instead of the usual light golden colour. I only did an oil change about 2000km ago. any ideas whats the cause of this? maybe i should cut open the oil filter to make sure there is no metal bits in that could be signs that somethings not right

That's prefectly normal, doesn't take long to change. Normally as soon as you drive it & dip again it's darkened after mixing with whats left of the old oil around the engine. I wouldn't worry about it, it's still doing it's job...
