Re: Oil Pressure Volvo D3 I - C
On one of our older boats we had the same issue and it turned out to be a leaky front seal on the injector pump pumping fuel into the oil.

Subject: Re: [AmelYachtOwners] Oil Pressure Volvo D3 I - C
since yesterday I have an oil pressure problem on my AMEL 54#96.
When I go from normal speed to idle, the oil alarm starts.
Of course, this doesn´t happen in the port but between the islands in Croatia.
My German Volvo expert suspects that the oil is too thin.
Diesel has probably gotten into the oil.
That´s why I changed the oil. More than 7 liters of very thin oil came out.
Then the engine ran again without an oil pressure alarm.
But today, when I switched back to idle, the alarm went on again.
I appreciate any advice or experiences.
Thanks a lot,

Currently Croatia close to Dubrovnik
