Oil pressure insufficient. please what can i do please help me

You checked that you have oil in the engine, right? If not, check it before starting the engine again.

If you are not low on oil, it could be the oil pump that's gone bad, clogged oil filter, or even the oil pressure sensor. Have a mechanic check it.

Oil pressure insufficient light comes on with stop sign from my peugeot 406. lately, i changed the timing belt(cambelt) along side the valves and ever since, the indicator of oil pressure insufficient

the oil pump should have been PRIMED before running the engine , this is done by connecting a electric drill to the oil pump drive and run drill for 3-5 mins , this will pump the oil into all the galleries etc so when engine is started the oil is already around the smaller intricate areas , the oil pump alone will not always get to these parts after having the head removed , that is also the reason for the rise in temp

How to change drive belt peugeot 406 2.0

Buy a Haynes Workshop Manual for Peugeot 406 1999-2002 PN 3982. Definitely it will help. It is a relatively easy job. Normal, the drive belt is a life time component if you keep the car properly. Mine is 2004 406 Coupe 2.0 auto. The belt is still in top condition.

My 406 peugeot keeps showin oil pressure insufficient on d display whenever my air conditioner is on,please what can i do 2 rectify this problem?

Make sure your oil level is where it should be-if it is, get it changed, and get a heavier viscosity oil installed, i.e., if you are using 5W-30, go to 5W-40-also pay attention to your idle, if it is low, it will cause the issue you are experiencing-your throttle position sensor, Idle air controller or (worst case) your oil pump may be causing this (also the oil pressure sensor)-easiest thing to do is get the oil changed, you do not offer information that would make answering this, like YEAR, ENGINE, MILES, how long since last oil change.
