I have a 1996 fiat cinquecento 900cc with an oil pressure problem and I am a little worried. The oil pressure light keeps coming on at idling when the car is warmed up and so far I have replaced the oil pressure switch and the sump gasket and the oil pump but it is still doing it and I have noticed that if the car is at adle for over 20 secs when you pull off there is a big cloud of blue smoke coming out of the exhaust and I know its not the head gasket because that was done when I bought the car 6 months ago. Is my engine knackered or is there something else wrong with it?

Do you
have the same problem?

First thing you need to do is get the oil pressure tested with a mechanical gauge, this will give you the actual pressure reading, get this done cold idle, hot idle and hot @2000 rpm, post the readings here.
