Oil pressure low stop engine

Post by d5cou » Mon Jul 18, 2016 9:39 pm

:o For the last few weeks, when I brake hard, I get a warning message "Oil Pressure Low Stop Engine". The message disappears after a second. I have topped up the oil, but this hasn't fixed it. The car seems to be a bit more sluggish than normal... any ideas anyone??

Yes. Stop braking hard.

Take it to a dealer - it may be a faulty sensor it may be a faulty pump; the former is a pain, the latter will destroy your engine.

It may sound stupid, but check you brake fluid level first.

Three potential and most likely causes...

Low oil level caused by oil leak, burning or never filled up to the correct level
Duff oil pressure sensor/sender

If you park your car on a steep incline (front facing up hill and down) does the error occur?

I don't have any idea about stop engine. I think you can contact mechanic for this machine.
