    Default 1.8 VVTi Oil Light

    Just asking how long it takes for the oil light on your vvti to go out on first start?

    A second or two after start up. It does take ages. HOWEVER I checked the pressure and it shoots up straight away. I think the sensor just takes a lot of pressure to turn it off. Fit a lower pressure sensor from the old non vvt 1.8 and it will fix the problem....

    Basically its the light taking ages rather than the oil pressure....

    If you think about it. If the sensor takes 30psi to activate instead of 20psi for example then it takes longer to get up to 30psi than 20psi so it takes longer to go out!
