**LOW OIL PRESSURE, TURN ENGINE OFF**

My 2010 2SS is pretty much a daily driver. Only has 9,532 miles and I haven't driven it in the last two days. This morning I started her up and after about 5 secs the DIC showed " LOW OIL PRESSURE, TURN OF ENGINE!"

Had it towed to the dealer, but I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? The car still starts/drives, just throws that code and the oil pressure gauge reads all the way left (zero).

I checked the oil, it had plenty of oil too.

Thanks in advance for your input everyone.

Could also be a bad oil pump or associated part. Let's hope it's a sensor. Either way, no worries - you have a warranty.

Technical Service Bulletin. It's something the manufacturer's put out to the dealers when they've discovered a problem.

Been there done that....oil pump bypass is stuck, doesn't allow oil to the top of the motor. Will need to replace/repair oil pump.

For me it was done in one full day by CINCY SPEED.

You have to pull everything off the front of the motor, and drop/tilt the oil pan. It is a pretty involved install. I would say a few days at the dealer.

Hey- pretty sweet the car tells you to shut down. In the old days you'd get an idiot light that you would in all likelihood ignore and presto - motor is IRREPARABLY damaged.
