You have an oil pressure light? :shock: My HDi didn't so I assumed none of them did. Is it clattery when the oil light is on? Without an accurate way of measuring the oil pressure your safest option is to change the oil and filter. I'm not sure if they have them any more but I've had issues in the past with the bypass in the filter jamming open, so if it's not long had an oil change you should at least change the filter.

Apparently oil filters do still have a bypass valve inside them so yes, as above, change the oil filter.

As long as you don't rev it while the light is on it shouldn't do much if any damage but I would agree - oil and filter change.
