When starting from cold the oil warning level light goes out but after about 10 miles of travel if I turn the engine off for a short while and then start the car again the oil level warning light does not go out. the oil level on dipstick shows just less than maximum.
The engine is a 2003 Clio 1.2 ltr 16 valve engine

Hello and welcome to the forum.:)

Exactly which light stays on?.If it is the red oil light then that is the oil pressure which is something altogether more to worry about.Does the engine sound harsh/rattle at all?.How long has the problem been happening?.

If the oil level is ok, then the sensor is screwed or gunked up with crap.

I may have been given duff info from garage they said it was oil level light on right side of instrument panel. The light is amber but looking at the book could it be the toxic fume warning light:loser:

Dunno........... you have the slight advantage over us of A) seeing the light, and B) having the book that tells you what it is in front of you...........
