Hi Sebastian
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Could the fault be with the oil pressure sensor

Dear customer, I am sorry that you have this problem, you have to be careful with this, the oil pressure light comes on when the oil pressure sensor detects a drop in pressure, it is ok to check the oil level when this happens but it is very likely that you have problems either in the sensor or in the oil pump that is not generating adequate pressure for proper lubrication of the engine.

Is there anything else I can help you with?

Where on the engine is the sensor

Dear customer, it seems to me that it is located at the front of the engine near the pump, or just to the side of the filter, one of these two locations.

Is there anything else I can help you with?
