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)
life begins at 10psi of boost

Three turbo'd motorcycles and counting.
