The check engine light will usually come on.

On a Chrysler product the check engine light will not come on for low oil. You should either see the oil pressure gauge fall (if equipped) or the low oil pressure light will come one. That is the one that looks like a little red oil can. In addition the engine will overheat and you will start to hear some noise from the engine.

In either case, it's a serious problem and operating the engine under these conditions can destroy the it.

Make sure your bolt that hold your oil in your oil sump is still there. Change your oil after 6000 kilometers. If your oil is still fairly clear your good.

It doesn't have one. to check the oil, the car has an electronic oil indicator viewable on the bottom of the tachometer when sitting in the drivers seat with the engine running.
