Low base oil pressure

I had the same problem in my E4 50 super duty box truck. I replace all the wire harness on the IPC blah blah blah all those sensors and still have the same issue. Diesel engine produces more power when more diesel fuel is introduced into the combustion chamber by the injectors. So given that, I ended up replacing all the injectors with factoring Motorcraft OEM injectors and that solved all the problems.

Car model: chevrolet colorado 2.8 turbo diesel ,

It sounds like it has a bad main bearing, or it is dumping oil in the fuel (bad gaskets) You definitely do not want to run the engine with low oil pressure.

My engine has a knocking sound

i'm sorry! does the engine dipstick for the oil,is it full? has it been run low on oil lately? is the knocking sound like a real hard knocking,thumping with like deep base sound?if so,do not start it again. you may have a bad crankshaft bearing,or a bad crank,broken crank. if it's a tapping sound,that's different. it could be low oil pressure, just like the lower knocking,it may be bad oil advice is this, lower knock from oil pan where you drain the oil,do not start! upper,on top of the engine,just change oil 1st add a fram oil filter,if in cold weather recommend 5w30weight oil,in summer,30weight castrol with fram oil your oil light on? if not,then it'not low on oil,but CHECK your oil on dipstick,just to be sure thank you for choosing

Hi ive got no oil pressure on my 2.5di turbo diesel nissan navara 2002 reg any ideas?thanx

If it's still running ok, with no unusual knocking or other noises, the problem is your oil pressure sending unit - a simple and inexpensive repair. You pick up a replacement at any auto parts store and install it yourself with simple tools. If not running, the problem could be your oil pump or any one of several other possibilities. There's really no way to narrow it further without having it checked by a mechanic.

Engine knocking noise in 2000 saab 9-3 SE?

It's a common problem with these cars i am actually fixing mine as of now. That car is all about oil pressure and when it is low you'll start to get a tap and or what sounds like a knock due to the lifters not having enough pressure. Try taking your oil pan off and check your oil pick up line going from the oil pan to the turbo. A lot of times it gets a lot of sludge build up and makes the pressure little to none. If that looks clear check the slump inside the oil pan and see if that has sludge build up. Well hope this helped

Knocking in cylinder head of escort 1.8 lx td


Engine knock, if it is coming from low down in the block, is usually caused by worn big ends, and is more pronounced at idle or under load.

Diesels, however have the added bonus of being able to create a nice knock due bad fuel atomisation, overfuelling, or excess oil burning.

Bad fuel atomisation is usually caused by dirty injectors.

Excess oil burning is usually caused by a worn turbo amongst other things.

Very best regards
