Hi I have a Lancer with a 4G92 MIVEC as per the picture:

Recently the oil pressure has started to go low when the engine is at idle/tickover.

This is shown on my oil pressure gauge as well as the oil light on the dashboard has been flickering.

Also the car won't go into MIVEC mode.

I have checked the oil, it is at the correct level on the dip stick and was only changed about 3000 KM ago, running 10W40 fully synthetic oil.

Everything was working fine previously, then after a long fast run on a clear motorway where I was able to go into MIVEC mode, when I turned off the motorway and stopped at some traffic lights noticed the low oil pressure at idle.

The oil pressure for regular driving looks fine.

Any idea's about to fix this issue?

Many thanks
