If you’re receiving a notification from your
about the oil being at the minimum level, it means that your engine does not have enough oil to run properly and it’s time to add more oil.
Continuing to drive with low oil levels will cause damage to your car’s engine, so this should be addressed right away. Luckily, you can take your vehicle to a mechanic to have oil added or you can handle it yourself.
If you choose to add oil yourself be sure to check your owner’s manual to find out what oil is right for your BMW and then locate the oil cap.
