Thanks Darkhorse - I'll get it checked.
I have only had the car for about 3 months, so I don't know when the oil was last changed. But it never gave me that message before.
The oil filter canister is on tight, no leaks around it.
The message does not stay on constantly and the oil pressure idiot light never stays illuminated (it illuminates when the key is on - which is normal - but then the light turns off once the car starts up - as it should). The message comes on when I start it for the first time that day but it does not come back on when it is started again later on the same day.
The exact message is "Low Oil Pressure - Check Owners Manual".
