Hi there

I recently purchased a 2000 9-5 and on the way back home with it (500 miles away) the oil light came on and some noise started coming from the engine. I immediatley parked up the car, abandoning it for Xmas week. It's only now I am heading back to collect it to tow the car home.
What should I expect?
I have searched this forum and the general consensus is oil pan filter blockage caused low oil pressure.
Am I in deep trouble?
What should I look out for?

Thanks in advance for any advice

Sadly you could well be a victim of oil pump failure caused by sludge......thats a new engine :eek:

Take some oil, there is always a chance it was very low on oil :confused:

Checked the oil

Checked the oil before I bought it and when the oil light came on, both times fine.
