This is about my bros car an M-plate 2.0 Ecotec Cally 16v
Thing is just recently its started to take its time for the oil pressure to come up. well I say it did, I dont knwo what it was like before Im just going on my bros description. You start it from cold, and you have to wait 30 seconds for the oil pressure to gradually
build. Is this normal?
Cold idle = 2bar
Hot idle =1bar
all this taken from the vaux oil/pressure meter.
He doesnt treat his motor kindly. And its only done 3000miles this year. The problem occured when it went in for an MOT and failed on emissions so the 'mechanics' took it out for a blast with some Redex in. It later past, but then my brother started complaining of oil pressure probs.
Any help guys?
How long does it take to get up to pressure normally?
This could be quite normal but hes kicking up a fuss so I guess not.
