2015 PEUGEOT EXPERT 2.0 HDI OIL PUMP FAILURE.
Our customer gave us a call as there 2015 Peugeot Expert 2.0 HDI oil light, stop light and engine light had illuminated on his dashboard and the engine sounded really noisy.
We started the van and immediately it was apparent that there was a major oil pressure issue. As we service the van we knew the correct oil and filter had been used so we did a oil pressure test to measure the pressure of the oil that was circulating the engine.
The oil pressure was only 1 bar when it was supposed to be 4.2 bar so we knew there was a problem with the oil pump, after speaking with the customer it was decided to strip the engine to gain access to the oil pump.

We removed the sump pan and lower engine sandwich plate to gain access to the oil pump and removed it so a visual inspection could take place.
Oil pump vain failure Peugeot 2.0 HDI.
Once the oil pump was stripped it was found that the main vain in the pump had shattered and only half of it remained which caused the low oil pressure.

We cleaned out the oil ways and replaced the oil pump then performed 2 oil and filter changes 200 miles apart to make sure no remnants of the oil pump metal remained in the engine.
Always remember if your oil light comes on pull over and stop your engine immediately as damaged will be caused if you do not.
