Re: Diesel VM engine oil pressure warning light comes on

Bit more history please...
how many Km's?
Serviced by who?
Previous dramas?
Hot oil or cold oil?
What oil using?

As a general rule is the light comes on in a few seconds/minute you will hear the lifters start rattling as then loose oil pressure... if not I suspect a faulty oil sender unit.

2nd time occurring? Have them replace sender & take oil sample & have it checked at Castrol ( they may do it for you... i think Mobil have similar facilities...) for metal etc....
