    Default Meriva

    Guys a little off the vectra topic but , my son has a 56 plate meriva 1.4 and he's having the oil light come on and when it does the engine sounds clanky/noisy it then goes off and the noise goes too... There seems to be no oil leak.... Any one got any advice on what the problem might be, as he's on a tight budget and is a bit concerned... Cheers guys

    Sounds like a drop in oil pressure, find out how the oil pump is driven? Could be a fault on the oil pump drive?

    Also check the oil pressure bypass valve if fitted as he spring may be defective.

    When was the oil last changed? Is there enough oil in the car??

    The clanking will be due to drop in oil pressure, he will end up damaging the engine.

    Thanks for the reply, last service I think was about 12 months ago an is due anytime now, he is taking it to the garage next week for mot and to get them to look at it, but he wants a bit of upfront advice rather than them blinding him with car jargon cos cars ain't really his thing tbh..... I did take it out for a spin but as is usually the case with these things , it didn't do it.... Typical
