On this one, since you replaced the OP sensor, I wouldn't take any chances on an oil pickup clog or a pump failure. Talk to the dealer/indy, but I'd probably flatbed it. Pump failure can cause thousands of dollars damage in minutes. Could be something simple, but the alternative is really bad.Alright so heres my story,
I recently purchased a 2004 bmw with 82,000 miles on it and it drove fine for a while. i got it inspected after i purchased it and they said there was a small oil leak but they couldnt tell where it was comming from. i had to make a long trip recently and on the way home the oil pressure light came on. so i added half a litre of oil and the thing drove well again. then several hours later it came on again so i added more oil. the light didnt come on again until this morning. it was driving fine last night but as soon as i started it this morning the pressure warning came on, i checked the oil level and its a little more than full. i looked up on here possible reasons why this could be and they said to replace the oil pressure switch which i just did and the light is still on.
What i want to know is could it be the oil pump? if so how can i tell? if i need to take it to a dealership do i have to tow it? the engine sounds the same by the way.
If there's anyone who has another idea besides the OP sensor for the 545, let him know.
