Oil Light

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

After Snet yesterday (where I missed a gear and over reved), I took the car to work this morning.

 

Within a few miles, I noticed the stack oil indicator was glowing a little, not fully on. Within less than 1/2 mile, it went off without further signs. The EP Oil pressure gauge was showing 4bar and oil temp looked OK.

I have the EP higher pressure light sensor.

 

What do you think? Classic electrical thingy or a real oil problem?

 

Thanks

Bill

If your gauge is showing normal readings when cold and hot & at low and high RPM it is more than likely the sensor.

 

4 bar sounds ok, what does it drop to on tickover when warm ?

Sounds ok to me if there are no knocking or rumbling noises it will just be the sender.
