Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Volvo D3-110 low oil pressure warning

As far as I know, all engines with pressurized oil systems also have a pressure relief valve which bypasses the excess oil at a preset pressure. I can tell you that if the valve gets stuck closed that it can really make a mess when the oil filter blows off. (Grin) In the case of being unsure of an electronic oil pressure reading, I like to connect a mechanical gauge to help eliminate the guessing.

I do not believe the D3-110 has any adjustment for oil pressure. It does have a "safety valve," but I am not sure of that valve's function.
I would eliminate #1 before investigating others.
