While driving the other day, a warning message saying that my car had no oil pressure came on briefly. The message advised me to find a safe place to pull over.
The message disappeared after a couple of seconds. I was only blocks from my destination so I was able to get off the road. I turned off the car, waited a moment then re-started. No warning light, and no record of the message in my Maintenance window.
Have any other Volvo owners or mechanics seen this situation? My owner’s manual says it may indicate a faulty fuel pump, or I may just be a bit low on oil. My dealer says Volvo fuel pumps almost never go out so I’m probably either a bit low on oil (easy and cheap to top it off), or the oil trap could be clogged (about a $350 fix), or I could have bad rings and valves (>$4000 fix).
I’d love to get an idea of whether this is a big expensive problem or just another typical car owner annoyance to deal with.
