1999 996 Loss Of Oil Pressure


Vehicle Information: Model: Boxster; Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: yes;

I am checking a car with no oil pressure. Owner states that a quick lube shop may have torn the filter material on a oil service.(I know). He is not the first owner. Someone else said they pulled a piece of paper out of the filter housing. Checked the relief valve- not stuck. installed gauges on oil pressure switch port- no pressure. Yes it still runs, no excessive noise. I removed the sump plate- no obvious problem. What is next? can I remove the oil pump with the engine in the car? He said that for a while the lite only came on at higher RPMs -was out at idle. Thanks
