|Vauxhall Astra 1.7DTI Oil Pressure light - C82N|
I have a 2001 Astra with the Isuzu diesel engine. Whenever I start the engine from when it has been left for an hour or two, the oil pressure light takes about 5 or 6 seconds to extinguish after the engine starts. Is this normal? Does anyone else's do this? On previous cars that I have owned, the oil pressure light goes out straight away.
Could it be that oil is draining out of the oil filter when it has been left standing? The filter is a cartridge type and is located at the top of the engine. Does anyone know if there is a non return valve fitted somewhere in the system?
Perhaps this is just normal. Somebody please put my mind at rest!
