Q: Adding your own oil to a newer vehicle...

asked by on

I have been at 0% oil for about a week now. I can’t get in for an oil change just yet but am worried my engine will mess up. Can I add a little oil myself until I can make it in to get the oil change? Or will this cause more issues?

My car has 30000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
