Hi there. When you first remove the oil dipstick, it will typically be covered with oil. This is why the correct procedure is to wipe the excessive oil off the dipstick, reinsert and check the oil level after that. In regards to the warning light, and the humming noise, to correctly diagnose this problem it’s best to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete an onsite inspection to determine exactly what’s causing these symptoms.
