  1. Alright folks. I'm new to the forum and have just bought a 03 reg lupo s 1.4 16v. It runs and drives fine and I know the guy I bought it off who has done a full service on it recently. When the car starts the dash is clear but on pulling away the oil light comes and and beeps. I have read it may be the fuel pressure swith or a blocked strainer in the sump.

Try and acquire the rare find that is a "full exhaust" system with all the bits on. Any other suggestions would also be appreciated, Cheers

  6. Hi guys, Have checked through previous posts to check for faults so was after some advice on my emissions problem and another problem I noticed in the water tank? MOT on car was fine bar the emissions which were miles out! 0.76% instead of 0.30% 299 instead of 200 1.06 instead of 1.03 (don't have sheet with me so think that's it) Idle passed but all others failed at roughly above.
