STOP! engine oil pressure?
1995 740i e38 m60
I have had my bmw display come on a few times when starting up the car saying "stop! engine oil pressure" , i used to have this problem when i was running low on oil, as i had a few major leaks that are now fixed. I recently did an oil change using Castrol GTX 10w-40.**The oil level is completely full.** I know i should have taken the pan out for cleaning, since the oil that was in before looked like swamp mud, but due to the time i had, i chose not to (next time i wont make the mistake). This message also comes on when brakeing heavily from high speeds to 10mph or stops. What actually causes this message to happen?(all possible problems)
This may be a stupid question, but do the oil pump bolts affect this problem in any way, as i have read it is a common problem with e38's, having their oil pump bolts loosen over time. I never really understood what the effects of having loose bolts are though, i have only heard that it could really screw up your engine.
