Flashing Oil Light? Leak? Pics Added...
Posted 11 August 2012 - 03:15 PM
I got a focus 1.8 TDDI estate recently, and the oil light keeps flashing... seems to be worse when accellerating. Ive been told it may be a pressure switch, but after looking in the engine, i came across what looks like fresh oil... ive enclosed some pics of the oil patches, and the area where i noticed it.
Any ideas would be appreciated...

Give that joint a thorough clean, and then keep a close eye on it.
Is oil around that joint normal though?
If fresh oil appears, you have the culprit.
If no fresh oil appears, then what you see now is just a slow accumulated build up over time.

If the levels are all ok and there is oil sloshing around, you're not about to seize up, which is the important thing!
