Hi, over the last 3 days I've experienced a intermittent oil
pressure light/alarm coming on, very slowly at first then building. I motored 140nm over three days, first day really pushed engine
along (2850rpm) for 8 hours straight, then on the 3rd day 16 hrs motoring at approx 2600 Rpm
. Late in both days alarm
started making its noise
, at first very lightly ( no light ) and then gradually becoming louder until light come on. I would reduce rpm
which would make alarm
and light fully come on before disappearing. On the first day, after reducing rpm and light/alarm going away I increased rpm and it was fine for the rest of the day. Last day I would do the same only this time after sometime light/alarm would slowly start to come back on and Id have to repeat the process all over again. Engine
temperature was fine and engine sounded good.
I've just reached Puerto Galera Philippines
, I think the first step is to find a pressure gauge and test pressure.
Has anyone experienced this before? Yanmar
Didn't get into Anchorage until midnight so as yet haven't put alot of thought into it, I'm hopeing that when I awake the forum has spun it's magic and the answer miraculously appears on my smart phone
( simple answer).
Thanks in advance, Dale.
