Re: stanza engine problem?

the light comes on when the oil pressure in the main galley falls under a low psi (usually around 5psi)

This is the "oh sheit" light that should be translated to "SHUT OFF THE ENGINE THIS SECOND!"

Its not a sure thing that the motor is permanently damaged/completely destroyed....but its not a good thing if you have been running it like this for days with the light on.

But as I said, just replace the oil filter. Could be defective and is blocking flow, but I would suggest taking it to a shop to have them look it over. You don't sound terribly confident that you're checking the oil level correctly, and you are risking a junk motor. Its not worth the painfully expensive learning experience you're about to discover (assuming its not already too late)
