SOURCE: ANYONE KNOW HOW MANY HOURS TO REPLACE HIGH

These are usually and item which will last at least 3 - 5 years before they would need replacing under correct servicing conditions.

If you have been replacing them more frquent then you have a problem with either the hose assemblies them selves or how they are been fitted.

Hope this helps

  • Well it could be a bad oil pump or a bad Oil Sending Unit. If you have an oil pressure gauge you can pull the sending unit and stick the pressure gauge in there and see what the reading is. I would thing 60PSI would be suitable.
  • I believe this Oil Sending Unit is on the front (possibly the back) of the oil pan.
  • Just remove the connector and put a wrench (or a deep socket) and twist it out and replace with a new one.
  • Make sure the oil filter is snug and not leaking as well.
  • Check your oil level too and make sure it is properly filled.
  • Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 2005 Nissan extera and the iol pressure guage stays on high v6 2 wheel drive automatic what could be the problem it does need an oil change


some say, it's good to have high oil pressure. but it is abnormal to the system. does it means there is restrictons from oil gallery that makes the oil pressure go high. any kind of motor or engine needs change oil. you had manaul recommending,when you change oil and what kind of motor oil you're going to use. change your oil filter too.

The 04 was pretty straight forward.

Change the oil and filter when the display tells you to. (Don't forget to reset Oil Life system!)
when the display tells you to change engine oil... Do the following as well:
~Lube Chassis Components
~Check Tires for Air and Damage
~Inspect Break System
~Check Engine Fluids and Washer System
~Check Power Steering System
~Check Wiper Blades
~Check Restraint System
~Lube Body Components (See manual)
~Replace Cabin Air Filter (Located in firewall on passenger side.)


Every 25K miles do the following:
~ Inspect Fuel System, Exhaust System, Accessory Drive Belts for damage or wear.
~ Replace Air Cleaner

Ever 50K Miles
~ If used for Towing - Replace Transfer Case Fluid :: If not change fluid ever 75Kk miles.

Every 100k Miles
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter again at 150k if heavy service
~ Replace Spark Plugs

Every 150k miles
~ Change Engine Coolant (Or every 5 years which ever comes first!)
~ Replace Engine Accessory Drive Belt

optional y are supposed to change the transfer case fluid every 50k if towing

While driving my oil pressure will jump from 40 to 0 to in between for a few miles then it will drop out to 0 and stay there. If I turn the car off and wait a while then start it again the pressure will...


Has it been doing this for a while or maybe getting gradually worse? First get another guage and check the oil pressure with that to be sure that your guage is functioning properly and it is not the problem. If your guage checks out I would suspect that something is floating around in your oil pan and getting picked up by the oil pump, blocking the screen. Perhaps either yourself or a previous owner was using an oil additive regularly. Some of them will coat everything including the oil pan and with repeated use it builds up on the sides of the pan and eventually starts to flake off. You'll have to remove the pan and clean it and the pick-up screen and the oil pump.
It's also possible that if you have a high mileage engine that you may need to switch to a heavier oil. Depending on mileage you could go to 10W40, 15W40 or with very high mileage 20W50 instead of 5W30 or 10W30. This could cause your problem. Hope this helps.

Needing necessary maintenance ideas (other than oil change, filters, tires) for 2005 Equinox with 120,000 miles on it. Mostly highway driving.


it is due to have coolant changed vehicle runs dexcool which is a 5yr 150k mile coolant so time is up on that. i would also recommend transmission service. check the cabin filter if yours has one it will be under hood on cowl by wiper arms

The guage may rise a little when you accelerate the vehicle...but if it is pegged high, and does not fluctuate, when you turn your ignition key on an off...Your oil pressure switch maybe going bad...Goodluck

Engine light on/Oil Gauge on stays on high


Any waranties left? Is oil full? Any noises from engine? Did you put a mechanical gauge on it and check "real" oil pressure? (I would not drive it 'till I was sure about actual oil pressure!!)

Air guage light


looking in my service manuals it has to be done by the nissan dealer as it uses their scan tool.
if you had tire repaired and put back in same spot then light should have gone off
check your air pressure in all tires if low fill with proper inflation and drive light should go off.
If pressures are good then the sensor in the wheel you had flat in is damaged
