Saab 9-3 2.0 turbo oil pressure warning light
I have a 2001 Saab 9-3 2.0 SE turbo recently the car was blowing lots of white smoke and it was rectified by replacing the turbo.
However since I have had the turbo done and even beforehand after a short of the car being started maybe 30 minutes or sothe oil pressure warning light would come on the dashboard. So I woul dimmediatly switch the car off for a short while upon restaring the light would be gone.
I have avoided driving the car because I don't know whether it may cause it more damage.
There is a slight ticking noise coming from the engine.. not knocking just a faint constant tick.
I have read about sludge problems and also something to do with the oil pick up starving the turbo? But don't know whether this is relevant.
I would appreciate if anyone could give me any advice regarding this? What would be the best way to go around fixing this? dealership or back street garage or maybe do myself if not anything heroic involved?
Any info would be appreciated,
Thanks and have a Merry Christmas and happy happy new year!!
