    As it seems to be intermittent it could be a dodgy oil pressure sensor or a bad connection on the plug.

    If you have Low Oil Pressure Stop Engine light only at first start up on cold mornings, than it is oil pump seal/gasket. 18 euros for part and it is oil sump off job.







    Number 4







    Seal/gasket

    Did you see the old seal?? There is a two seals and one gasket in oil pump assembly. The seal between the oil pump and sucktion pipe is the one i got replaced in mine. I was getting Low oil pressure stop engine light every cold morrning at first start up.. To replace that seal you have to remove oil pan only, to replace two others you have to remove??the oil pump itself and that is timing belt off job. Which seal they replaced?

    I was having a Low oil pressure warning on cold start up's. Software was up to date. Oil changed, oil pressure switch changed.still problem. Im also a member of another Insignia forum. And a good few members out there were experienced same problem( cold cold winters out there ??). And i was given this advice. Replace Seal between pump and oil sucktion pipe! ), the problem was that it had become hard and was not sealing properly. The sump drop takes a while since there's quite a few things to remove but it is not complicated, it's just a matter of unscrewing a lot of things. Since i did this no warning light at any ambient temperature.

    Another one fixed by changing the gasket, no more Low Oil Pressure warning. Old gasket had turned hard like plastic.



    Here's the new one in situ
