Today I was sat at the lights and noticed the oil light had come on, No prob I thought, topped up a litre of oil as always keep some in boot...any way when the car gets to about 1800 rpm he lght goes out... Had a smell of burning oil and when I looked u der the car i could see it dripping on the cat... I was just about to leave for work so quickly jacked it up and saw that the engine was wet onrhe side, it looked like it was coming from the area with the oil pressure switch.. Well I think it's that, on the side by the cam belt?? And way got to work, and nus checked the level and all fine but a small patch say the size of a side ate under the car, no dripping but it does look a bit of a mess under the car... Oil splasjlhed all over.. Sump is wet, as is most of the areas under and around that side of the engine.... I do 70 miles aday to and from work with the car.. Times are hard at the mo so can't really afford massive bills.. I read that the oil pressure switch is known to leak on some models.. Could this be the case?? Seams it could be that as the oil light goes out when the revs are up.. Hence pressure is up in the engine....
Any thoughts? Also are the sensors cheap? Looks lime a pain to get to.. Easy job of leave it to te pro's??
