Low oil pressure on startup (hot and cold)
So, i've had my Alfa for roughly two weeks now - and the todo list is getting longer. Perhaps i should not have bought it, but i felt a responsibility saving it from the hands of the previous owner and give it some much needed TLC.
It's a 156 2.0 TS with 190000km on the clock and was born in 1998.
Now, one issue which concerns me is that it sounds like a tractor for three seconds on startup (doesn't matter if the engine's hot or cold). Pretty much sounds like it takes a few seconds for the oil pressure to build up properly. But then, if the oil pressure was too low, i assume the low oil pressure light would light up on startup, which it does not.
So what do you guys think, any ideas? Wrong viscosity (even though that would be a concern for a bit longer since the oil doesn't exactly take 3 seconds to heat up enough to make that difference)? I don't know... let me know what you think of this. Would be much appreciated!
All the best,
