    Default Oil pressure light delay

    Vectra SRi 150 - from cold my oil pressure warning light takes a second or two to go out, this can indicate slack main and Big end bearings and I do get a rattle until the light goes out but it sounds like it's from the top end.

    I'm wondering / hoping this is just the hydraulic valves being filled as that would stop the oil pressure building up for a second or so.

    Is this delay normal or do I need to worry?

    Vehicle : vectra-c

    Trim : sri

    Engine : cdti

    Year : 2004

    Default

    If you know its history fair enough, but change the oil & filter (use a genuine filter) put vx fully synth oil in 5/30 & see how it goes.
