Hi all,
Have a VN V6 Belina, Starts all good etc, but Drives 4 kms & looses oil pressure, I'm pretty sure its the oil pick up, But don't want to drop the crossmember etc,
Do you think pulling the filter off & back flushing with maybe turps or kero, a bit of compressed air would do the job? Just gotta get it going again?, only a A-B car,
Has any one done this before?
Many thx
Rich
