I've seen this on my Aero when testing my brakes after bedding them in, but I assumed I must have underfilled the oil slightly (hard to find a level surface to check the oil level on). However, I don't really know whether it is normal. I haven't seen it since I last changed the oil, although I don't think I've done the same type of braking either.Originally posted by Mark_A:
[qb]Also, when on my last braking runs the big speed full-on stops.. just as the car nearly stops, the oil light blinks on.. considering that the oil is new and at the correct level.. is this normal ?[/qb][/b]
When you think about it, the oil must really slosh around in there and I think it has quite a lot of room to do it in. It wouldn't surprise me to find that you can briefly slosh all the oil away from the pickup pipe.
