Low Oil Pressure Warning light
« on: June 12, 2017, 08:39:51 am »
Hi Guys,
I have a 2.2d sport sat Nav 2013 (new shape), last night the Low Oil Pressure warning light came on !, anyone any info on this before I take it to a garage ? , last week I had to replace my rear brake calipers ( £600) not a happy mazda 6 guy just now.
cars done 85000 miles.
anyone any links to getting parts , its a nightmare sourcing anything for this car.
cheers
alex

Check out my post in the "sold my Mazda" section of this site. Its a bit lengthy but explains my experience with low oil pressure and ultimately total engine write off. Good luck.

Problem solved  :)

Oil & filter change , reset light at local garage but kept coming back on , after several phone calls to mazda they told me to bring it in and they would reset the COUNTER, took it over and the technician plugged it in ,said there was 2 codes ( one good , one bad) mines was the good code , he reset it and its been fine ever since.

So if your getting the car warning light reset at a local garage arrange to get it reset at Mazda. Job done , thank godness  8)

cheers

Your experiences mirror mine exactly. Calipers went. Now engine going through rebuild. 2013 Mazda 6 2.2 sport. All in 15 months of ownership. Turns out the engine had been rebuilt once before I bought it.  Will NEVER ever buy another Mazda.
