Answer ( 1 )

  1. First, you should check it with a manual pressure gauge to see if it’s really that low pressure, but because you heard noise from the engine the chance is high.

    If your oil pressure is low, there is a high risk that the oil pump is worn. It can also be dirt in the oil pickup from the oil pan.
