As some of you know from my other thread I have an oil pressure problem with my TS spider!
This is what happens......
Start ignition, lights stays on, revs go up to 2,500 light goes out, Its not the pressure light switch (changed it) Moving on to the bottom end, with out doing a pressure test I've been told it could be the oil pump! the cars in for a test on Tuesday next week.
Any 1 had similar problems or would like to share a view ???
Low oil level (never! always checked)
Incorrectly fitted or blocked oil pickup (a possibility?)
Worn big end bearings (also a possibility, not noisy tho)
Worn oil pump. (My thoughts)
Wrong oil viscosity 0w-30, and 5w-30 are too thin. (20k current)
Worn or damaged oil pumps are quite rare aparrently. (this is what I've heard)
Has the car ever had a cambelt snap, been run low on oil or had engine work that you know of?
I've owned the car for 2 and a half years, full service history, no belt damage or run low on oil in my ownership.
Its been fine untill 3 weeks ago when this happened
If it is a sticky release valve in the pump then its a belt off job to change the pump right?
