    Just a quick note for the record on a problem I recently had with a 1.4
    Diesel 106. For (too long) now the oil light has taken ages to go off on a
    cold start, and occasionally (maybe once or twice in a month) flicked on
    for a second whilst running. Everyone (including professional mechanics)
    had said to me "Must be electrical, oil lights tend to come on when the
    engine is hot if there is a problem". Replaced the pressure sender, still
    the problem was there. Flushed the oil system, replaced the filter etc
    etc. In the end took the sump off and the pick-up strainer was almost
    completely clogged with excess instant gasket which a previous mechanic
    had used to over-enthusiastically seal the sump. Problem solved.

    Hope this helps somebody else,
