Customer Question
I have 1989 Volvo...

I have 1989 Volvo semi and I have warning going off. It is the bottom one. It came on when the water pump belt broke and the engine got hot. I have since replaced all belts and topped off the radiator. I have noticed that it doesn't come on until the oil pressure goes up.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is your oil pump? Has the check engine light come on?

I don't know how old the oil pump is. If the bot***** *****ght is the check engine light then yes it is on.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '89 Volvo?

I think it is a WG

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I replaced the belts and filled the water reservoir and also shorted across the water level switch.
