when starting my bmw 2001, the oil light stays on for about a minute when driving then comes off, what does this mean????also do these bmw's have burning oil problems,???

If the oil level is fine, and the yellow oil light comes on only for a little while when starting the car, then it's probably your oil level sensor.

Yep... very common problem you have a defective oil level sensor.

Go to Tischer BMW for the part
