Oil light

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

I wonder if anyone can advise.

My oil light and engine management light do not go out when turned on.  They both go out a few seconds after starting although no engine codes show up when I plug it in.

The oil level is fine in the car although it is a little sluggish on acceleration until at a certain speed.

It's a 2007 Hawkeye with just under 70,000 miles on the clock so not very worn engine and looked after.

Also clutch peddle seems very high, within a half inch from the top, no usual clutch burn though.

I'm more a bike lad than cars although our third scooby still not mutch of a clue tbh.

Many thanks in advance.

are you talking about trubo lag? aka a delay between putting your foot down and it accelerating?


oil light is pretty much engine shagged light, if the pressure is low enough to turn it on, your engines already done for. that said, if it does go out then it is building pressure. it is 100% worth getting it checked out to see if the oil pump is on the way out.


2.5's are known for being some what unreliable in standard form, so milage is a tad irrelevant im afraid.


Clutch wise if its still on the origional clutch then 70k isn;t bad, mine was pretty much dead at about 62k miles on the car, although i dont know if it was the origional one or not. Is there much travel between initial bite and full engagement?
