Need help with my Lancer 2008
« on: February 26, 2018, 03:08:47 PM »
The oil lamp on my lancer 2008 model but purchased 2011 has been on since last night. I went up to the thunderbird and by the time i got up the steep climb, my oil lamp turned on and would only go off when I revved the engine to 2000 rpm or higher.

does this mean i need a new oil pump? where can i go for repairs?

That indicator is to notify the driver that the engine either lacks oil pressure or it that it doesnt have the proper oil level. This  explains why the indicator turned on as you climbed the steep incline and went away when you revved up the motor passed 2000rpm (theoretically engine oil pressure should go up as the rpm increases in the engine). my best input for you  is for you to check your oil level using the dipstick (assuming you know basic car know-hows); if not then consult your nearest auto service center for a proper diagnosis.  It is possible that you may need the oil pump, but that happens only when prolonged negligence was done when it comes to following the necessary scheduled maintenance service intervals. 

I personally have my vehicle serviced here at Rapide San Antonio Makati.
They take care of all my vehicle needs.

In the future, remember to have your vehicle serviced and maintained as a preventative measure to avoid future and major headaches and trouble.

hope you get your vehicle issue resolved.
