    Oil Pressure

    This is from a previous posting I have found out that there was far to much oil and thats why the oil light came on and stead on when above 2000 rpm. From other info I have read if there is too little oil, the oil light will flash - I don't know if thats true or not. Something else that I found interesting is that when I put in 4.0 litres of oil, then checked the oil level and it was well below the low level mark so I finished of the 5 litre can let the oil settle then turned the engine the level seemed ok. I checked it two days (not hours) later and it was above the high level mark. The orange light came on when on the motorway and reving at 2500 to 3000 rpm (60-70mph). So I had to take some out by loosening the filter. This is a month ago and there has been no light since. I rekon 4.0 to 4.5 litres of oil is ok. I dont know if this helps you but I know the sinking feeling when you see this light. All the best Patrick
  2. Try Elephant.co.uk or Tescos I got the best price £250 cheaper then Direct Line. Its still not cheap

  4. I have just bought a N reg Estima Lucida (Automatic) When I do town driving and dont go above 40mph there is no problem. When I go at above 40mph even for a short time this light comes on. I have checked the oil it seems ok. Any Ideas Thanks Patrick
