2000 Sonata: oil light came..parked..lube/oil change place

Customer Question

The oil light came on in my Hyundai 2000 Sonata. I got home and parked it and turned it off as it was too late to go anywhere. A lube/oil change place is about one mile and a half away. Do you think the car will make it there in the morning? Thanks so much.

If you check the oil and you can not see the oil level on the dipstick then I would not chance it.Put a least 1 quart in before you go.

It is only .77 miles away -- I am not sure how to put the oil in though.The dip stick did have oil on it.
