Can anyone help solve this problem i have?
I have a 1989 uk 530ise six cylinder.
The oil presure light and gonge sound when i start the car in the morning or after a rest of about two hours it seems like the oil is draing out of the filter casing back into the sump and the pump has to fill the filter casing again before presure reaches enough to put out light
the light never comes on while driving and goes out straight away on a quick stop start.Does the small o ring on the filter canister long bolt have anything to do with the drain back.
Many thanks for any help
