Loss of oil pressure JTS
The warninglight came on while waiting at the light, drove it straight off the road and checked the oil. All good, all there. Took it the 2 mile drive home, and the warning reappeared when parking.
Next day i took it to my specialist just 2 miles down the road so they could have a look, and again the warning came just when pulling into their parking, so i stopped it right away.
There are no rattles of any kind, seems like normal, normal temp, oil to the max (10w60).
They have measured the oilpressure with a manometer after making an adapter (no other way to read the oil pressure on a jts, will not show with the diagnostics), and the pressure is really low. Now, the sump is coming out for further inspections.. Could it be a pump failure?
It just had a belt and variator change 1k miles ago, at the same specialist, and the car has done just over 100' miles. They have never experienced pump failure on a jts, checked at two independent garages.
Any clues what would cause this? The car has allways been highly maintained, and have not had any engine related problems.
All help would be greatly appreciated.
