Oil level warning
Question concerning '98 E320 we picked up last year...
First oil change, done at local garage - I supplied the filter, crush ring, etc. After the oil change, oil level near minimum error appears, then oil level below minimum error after 15 minutes or so. As per dip stick check, level appears fine.
Garage claims oil sensor wonky after oil change, quoted $500+ to replace, which I skipped.
As FYI: Car currently has 50,000 miles on it, no previous issues with oil level errors. Hasn't burned or leaked any oil in the year we've owned it.
