Dipstick says okay , just worried some oil viscosity sensor thingy may be malfunctioning....
Hi Fumey,

Definitely mention it to your dealer so they can make sure everything is functioning correctly. Also, Please PM me your VIN, contact information, mileage, & servicing dealer name/state so I can help.

Hey csvt2060,

I'm only seeing one poster with concerns, so if you notice anyone else, feel free to direct them my way and I'll assist. Since yours isn't quite there yet, there's nothing to worry about, but let me know if it doesn't light on your Focus. Thanks!
