    Oil pressure warning

    Forum Key Rings
    Hiya everyone, hope your all well, I was on my journey from barrow in Furness to port Talbot and I was about 15 miles from the M4 newport and I noticed when I accelerated there was a slight juddering and the power just wasn't there, no engine management light on either, and when I was changing gear the clutch was acting in a way it never has done ever, anyway as soon as I get on the M4 I could hear a weird noise and a message on the dash said OIL PRESSURE LOW WARNING, stop engine, so I did and phoned recovery, it's going in the garage over the weekend, another expensive job no doubt☹️

    . Yeap, probably second engine, or complete rebuild

    park your car somewhere and don't use it, and pray that the bottom end is ok.

    What's your milage, year, how long you having it, did you replace oil pump pick up seal?

    Seal should be replaced when you had it at 95k

    In that case I suspect that oil pump seal to be at fault and killed the engine.
    Sorry m8

    Sorry, I would probably look to swap engine from Vectra C a20dth. At least the bottom end.
    How much fitter said it would cost you?

    Well depending on the damage has been done.
    But yet again it won't be cheap as the engine has to be rebuilt but on the 1.9 CDTI Vectra c base instead of 2.0 CDTI Insignia.
    Saab are similar too I think.

    Just for the statistics purposes only, what year was it?

    You have 2 options, sell it as it is or for parts or repair it.
