MD355 Posted May 23, 2020 Report Share Posted May 23, 2020 Hi to all !! It's been 5 months now I have been enjoying the Esprit V8 after the complete rebuild without any problems.. Tonight while driving at 3000-5000 rpm around town, at some point the low oil warning light came on !! Immediately I pulled over and switched the engine off, in fear of the worst case scenario that something is wrong with my car.. After a few minutes, I started the engine and there was no problem whatsoever... No warning light either... and the car drove perfectly... This is the second time this has happened... My car is a 2001 Esprit V8 without oil pressure gauge, so I have no clue what is going on... For those who don't remember, last summer my engine spun a conrod bearing when the oil pressure relief valve got stuck open, and the engine was starved of oil... During that time the low pressure light came on, and after a few seconds I heard disaster from the back.. This time, after the rebuild with new pistons, new oil pump and new oil pressure relief valve, everything seems fine... So could it just be a bad sensor ??? My mechanic suggested we find a way to install an oil pressure gauge... Opinions ??? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
