Engine Oil Pressure Low Stop Message

Recommended Posts

Hi

My g/f's 2009/59 1.25 60ps fiesta displayed the titled message today.

The car was used on the motorway yesterday 55 miles each way.

The message appeared as she pulled onto the drive but because she turned the ignition off i could not get a picture of the message.

Does the car record that it has flagged up this message anywhere as there are no fault codes (DTC's)

The oil is on full (When hot) i will check it again when it has cooled down.

What would cause this message.

Could the motorway trip have shifted some rubbish in the sump to momentarily block the oil pump feed (Strainer in the sump)

Should we change the oil and filter to be on the safe side

hi mate,

how do you know the oil is full when it is hot? and it could be a faulty preissure switch,

a message may be logged in the message screen on the menu screen between the gauges.

Hi Lenny

Cheers for the image

Its a 59 plate (october this year the warranty expires)

It did it again this afternoon and i have pictures this time thankfully.

Car is booked in at the dealership tomorrow morning so they can investigate.

G/f was a little bemused when she was told they would check to see if there was oil in the engine as she had checked it the day previous when it happend last,

she said the dipstick shows full at cold in a stern voice :-) thats my girl lol

Amazing - I had the exact same problem with my 59 plate Fiesta today. What was the outcome?

Cutts of campden state they plugged in IDS no faults were found nor could they replicate the fault or get the car to display the message.

It has happened twice, we took pictures, cutts want to see the message on the car themselves not see a photo.

If it is the oil pressure switch maybe i will investigate that myself if it is easy for me to get at.

for the price of the oil preissure switch to fit the 1.25 fiesta engine Finis 1363512 around £8 i would have expected them to change it as a precaution. then tell you to come back if it happens again but most likely the switch. and from looking at the engine layout it would seem that it is fitted to the rear and difficult to access,

i personally wouldnt remove the oil preissure switch myself and i need to remove mine to fit a T piece so as i can fit the oil preissure sensor for the ford gauge in the pod. but in order to remove the sensor you need to drain the oil from the sump if you dont then the oil will run out when you remove the sensor, and it is imortant to get the sensor on to the correct threads when inserting it again so im going to leave mine to the professionals anyways.

and im sure if you went to a garage with the newly purchased ford sensor they would fit it for you for around £20-£30
