Hey Kids,



I was driving home the other night and giving it a bit and the oil light in the centre console came on sort of flashed for a second then went away. Then flashed again then went a way. Did this for about 10 mins until I got home. I was watching the oil pressure gauge when the light was on and pressure remained constant. I had checked the oil level that morning but checked it again when I got home and it was fine. ANybody know what might have caused this. Could the pump be stuffed or something?



Thanks



Matt

Were you turning hard, accelerating hard, or braking hard when it came on? When was the last time you changed the oil? What oil weight?
