Blocked Oil Pick-up Pipe
Is this an expensive repair?
A common problem but not always shown is a blocked oil pick-up pipe to the engine. It can cause your oil pressure warning light to come on and will cause engine damage if the problem is not rectified.
The oil pick up pipe has a gauze/filter that stops large particles going into the oil system. Over time this gauze can become blocked causing oil not to be supplied to the oil pump. To rectify this our technicians would drain the engine oil, remove the engine sump, remove the oil pick up pipe and clean the blocked gauze.
This is a very cost-effective repair that we have carried out many times. We have heard from customers before where the complete oil pump has been replaced to cure this problem and at huge expense. They wished they had come to us first.
Here at Reliance Bicester we are very familiar with this type of problem and if presented with a red dashboard warning light, we would always recommend you cease to use the vehicle and contact us straight away.
Additionally, regular routine servicing and brake checks are crucial for increasing your vehicles longevity and maximising its performance. Not only does it work to rectify any current wear and tear in your vehicle, but it also effectively aids in preventing further damage from presenting itself in the future.
