Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Volvo D3-110 low oil pressure warning
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Thanks bill. We are approaching Chania in Crete. We have been motor sailing for the past almost 4 hours and no issues at cruising RPMS. (1350 -1500). I have located the oil pressure sensor but cannot get to it with the engine running. Once we dock I can get into it more. I agree with your assessment and the likely issue being item #1.
In my search online it appears that other Volvo Penta owners have experienced this and some have dealt with it by lowering the RPMs slowly. We'll try this once close in to see if this makes any difference. Do you know if there is a governor/limiter that adjust to the oil pressure to ensure proper flow at all RPMs?
