Me again. My husband replaced the oil pump and everything (had to cut into the exhaust system to get to it). Anyways. The oil light is still on after running it for a couple of minutes (slight knocking in the engine. Imagine its from no oil)
Is this bad. Or just if fall into place. How long if so. Still hoping it will be ok
Did he performed an oil pressure check before he decides to replace the oil pump. Low pressure or worned-out engine bearings will cause knocking.
Its a new pump should produce the correct pressure, my concern here is sludge and engine bearings for that slight knocking. And depends where that knocking noise is. If the pressure is okay and light is On-replace the oil pressure sending unit.
Dunno know what to say-I feel for you -spending the money and time involved and its not it.
Do an engine flush this is our last hope and see what happens-if the light continues to come On-you have internal problems with the engine.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2008
