This is the ecu telling you the engine needs an oil change, its usually based on the number of regens (failed or otherwise) that the vehicles done.. the oil will most likely be contaminated with diesel and possibly way over the max level so its best to check the oil level before anything else.

Yes mate, these have a chain instead of a belt, when it wears/stretches it will rattle a bit like the old corsa c timing chains.
