Mine drops to 1.4 occasionally when really hot it doesnt bother me any more as know it's ok all depends on what grade oil and time if year, with the colder mornings etc.

Maybe have a look at sender see if all ok

Mine died in July scared the !Removed! out of me as went from. 1.8 slowly dropped to 0

Scoobyghost I'm going to look online now to see how 2 adjust it.but the thing is if it's beeping at 1.4bar I would have 2 lower it.what bar pressure should it b running when fully warmed is it 2.0bar.if so it will b no point in me lowering the setting to stop it beeping.sorry for all the questions I'm just really a bit confused.

If your warm idle is always 1.4bar, set it to 1.1 that will allow for slight deviations but also giving you enough warning should the pressure drop too low. I wouldn't worry about pressure providing its always constant. It's when you start getting strange readings that there's an issue. Whether it's the sensor or more serious. Do you have an oil temp gauge too?
