no oil pressure

Hi can anyone help? I have a 1990 fiat ducato 2.5 diesel, been parked for a only a week, when started oil light on, I can confirm no oil pressure at all, is there a commom fault with these engines?, oil level ok, I have removed sump and checked oil pick up strainer clear, I have also tried putting oil into oil pressure switch hole and turning engine backwards to prime the oil pump, but still no pressure,
I have rung fiat main dealer but oil pump obsolete! Tried various motor factors but unable to get a pump, even tried loads of breakers!. Also I cant find any information on line as to how to replace pump looks like I may have to remove injection pump first!

Before you start spending money, go onto the Fat Ducato forum and see if there are answers to this problem on there. I will be surprised if it is not. Please do let us know how you get on.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

When we had an early Talbot engine car, the oil pump had a spring operated pressure relief/bypass valve. After a run, the spring and ball bearing on the end would stick open and give the symptoms of low oil pressure. Don't know if your 2.5 has the same arrangement though - just a thought.

There will be loads of them, it's just a matter of asking the right question in the right place.

Here is the right place I'll be very surprised if after registering you don't find a source for the right pump, or a way of having it reconditioned.

Good luck, please let us know how you get on, and welcome to the site, someone on here may help you yet, sorry that I'm not able to do so.

How do you know there is definitely no oil pressure, are you relying on the light or have you put a gauge on or is it rattling like a bag of hammers.

I have taken the oil pressure switch off, cranked over engine and no okl has come out of hole, also pressure gauge reads zero when fitted.

Ta, I almost always check Ebay, some stuff is cheaper, but you might only find a crap used one, finding a part number for Google is always useful.

where did you get the part number from. OP never listed it, there are so many variations I did not search, so well done.
