Engine oil got really low, any precautions to take before I get it to the service centre?

Hi all,

Sorry if this a repost, the botherbot caught the first attempt. I gave my wife’s car a check over this morning and was shocked to find the oil level had dropped below what the dipstick could measure. Adding new oil, it took just over a litre of oil to bring up to the minimum level on the dipstick, and about 2L to measure just under full.

The car’s not been leaving oil on the floor of the garage, but it has gone through about 1.5L of oil in the last 4 months since I last remember checking. I’ll be getting it in the service centre once the holidays have passed, just wondering if there’s any steps you should take when the oil gets that low?

Thanks all 🙂
