  Thing is that's not the cause of his buzzing.  It would have to be from too
thin of oil, bad sensor, most likely the one on the filter housing (high
one), bad bearings, oil pump, plugged pickup screen, sticking relief valve,
  My work van just recently was found to have WAY too much THIN oil
in it, causing leaks, poor running and nearly no oil pressure.  It's been
parked since before Christmas.  I've been using the VW's to work out of
due to the much lower fuel consumption!  It was parked on a hill and the
float needle apparently leaks a little.  I drained 1 to 1 1/2 gallons of
oil out of it!  Much better now with straight oil in it!  It's parked nose
instead of down now too!  ANOTHER advantage to diesels! :)
