Hi,
Have a r53 cooper s, the other day the oil warning light came on. I checked the dipstick and it was low, bottom of stick. I topped it up with a 1 litre bottle.
Rechecked the level and it is now at the top marker.
With engine running the oil warning light went off and then filtered on and then back off.
I have now noticed oil on the ground and at the exhaust tips.

Is there too much oil in engine or something more serious? Engine ticks over fine.
