The engine is a 5 litre v8. I revved it to around 5000rpm about 2 weeks ago and since then the oil light flashes at idle after about a half hour of driving. I have read a few different forums but each 1 has a different answer. The engine runs and idles fine and hasn't lost any power and the oil level is right on the full line. Could it be either the oils to thin?( But it was fine before and the oil hasn't been changed). I have also read that it could be the sensor or oil pump picking up sludge or failing? The oil isn't black, its a dark bronze colour. There was even a forum that said it could be big end bearings? There is no knocks or tapping. Worst case scenario, if it is bearings does that mean a full rebuild and is it an expensive fix? And should I be still driving the car
have the same problem?
