Hi All
Just bought my first T4 2001 2.5tdi ACV and can't wait to get it on the road, I bought it as a project as the engine was blown (big ends), so got a recon engine and put it in. Starts on the button but over 1500 to 1800 revs the oil warning light and the alarm come on. I removed the oil pressure switch and put in a gauge but have no oil pressure. The issue I have is that on tick over the engine runs with out any warning that there is no pressure, so eventually would have seized
Can't get hold of the company that sold me the engine with 12 months warranty until Monday.
Any Ideas on what the problem could be
kind regards Ted

I will check today, another thing I noticed is that where the oil cooler fits there is an additional hole for the oil to go through, where as my original engine the hole was blocked with a core plug.Would that cause low pressure if it was returing to the sump
