Oil lamp turns on and off and oil doesn’t reach filter BMW e36 M43

Asked by: 20 views Engine Oil Question

I have got a 1996 E36 BMW with M43 engine and i have got a problem
The oil lamp turned on once , a mechanic told me it’s the oil pump so I changed it several times but same problem
The lamp turns on and off alone.It turns off when pressing accelerating pedal and turn on again when leaving it.

I have found that the oil doesn’t reach the oil filter when the lamp is on

Which part has got the problem?? And what can I do??

    Are you sure the pressure sensor is correct? I would connect a manual pressure gauge to check the oil pressure to start with.

    I think this article could help you out:

    I don’t know , but found that the oil doesn’t reach the oil filter sometimes specially when the oil lamp is on

    I don’t know if it is the sensor or not

    What could it be???
