Numerical oscillations in LES due to mesh refinement

I am doing LES simulation of the flow past inlet valves in engines.
And it seems like I get some kind of numerical oscillation at regions where the mesh has been refined.
I have tried both rhoPisoFoam and rhoPimpleFoam the problem is more apparent in rhoPimpleFoam (oscillations in both velocity and pressure) then in rhoPisoFoam (only oscillations in the near wall pressure)
I have tried different schemes and number of correctors with no significant improvement.
Does anyone have an idea what parameters I could check. The mesh is ok according to checkMesh aswell as for the software used to generate it (Fire)
I have attached som figures showing the oscillations aswell as the mesh.
The one showing velocity is rhoPimpleFoam
Pressure fluctation at surface, rhoPisoFoam
Velocity fluctuations in rhoPimpleFoam
