Oil Pressure Light Won't Go Out

Post by stuart42 » Fri Jul 29, 2016 8:45 pm

Hi all

After blowing up an engine at Southern 100 a couple of weeks ago, I've fitted a spare engine, since when the oil pressure light won't go out.

I've tried all the basics and am now down to checking oil pressure.

So can anyone recommend a oil pressure test kit that will fit a zxr please?

replace your old pressure sensor on your blownup engine with the one on this donor engine...this should indicate if its the sensor or actual low oil pressure.
