Problem with a VOLKSWAGEN TOURAN 1.6L FSI

VOLKSWAGEN TOURAN 1.6L FSI 2004 111k

Oil pressure warning light on when running on idle. The oil pressure was tested showing 0.2 bar on idle. The minimum pressure required to prevent the oil warning light coming on was 0.3 bar.

The fault was cured by carrying out a 45 minute Advanced Formula Motor Flush adding Oil Fortifier to the new oil. The oil warning light went off and the pressure was re-checked, which increased to 0.4 bar on idle. The oil pressure also increased  through the rev range and the engine was running smoother.

Thanks to Martin at Carmotion in Romford, Essex.
