SOURCE: Temp guage read hot, volt guage reads low, and oil pressure guage tops out. Could this be a bad ground?

Possibly, i would check the sending unit and of course the wires that connect to the temp prob. They often become worn or even short out on other wires. I suspect that the gage is telling the truth and you have a blown head gasket. Check the oil for water. Check the water level and see if you are losing water. good luck

SOURCE: engine misses at low rpm's

Actually, the higher RPMs mask misses that are very noticeable at idle.
Check under the hood at night in a dark place and look for fireworks around your ignition wiring; if your vehicle still has the original (crappy) ignition wiring, you may be due for replacing it.
Also, I'm pretty sure you have some version of 'on-board' diagnostics which can be scanned for stored errors. Call first, but most chain auto parts stores offer a free scan of the computer and may be able to pinpoint your problem in a minute or two.

SOURCE: low oil pressure on guage of my 89 ford ranger 6

Could be low oil level, a bad sending unit, or actually low oil pressure due to a worn oil pump or worn bearings.

High temp low oil pressure light comes on after driving for a few minutes, then off when engine at driving rpm. At stop light (idle or low rpm) light comes back on. Normal driving it goes out.


You need to find out why you have low oil pressure. It is normal that as engine rpm's increase, the oil pressure will rise- the oil pump is moving oil faster. Even though your light goes out, you could still have critically low oil pressure. There should be sufficient pressure at idle to keep the light off. The light will come on when your oil pressure is almost nil- I believe for some it's as low as 8 psi. Normally, oil pressure at idle is specified anywhere from 15 to 40 psi. You would have to check specifications for your Expedition. To verify oil pressure, hook up a mechanical gauge at the oil pressure sending unit on the engine block. Check with a local shop.

The causes run from easy, simple to budget busting ruin. Low oil level, wrong grade oil, real old oil, oil leaks, internal oil leaks, worn oil pump, worn crankshaft bearings. It was pretty common on older very high mileage cars to have a fluttering oil light at stops and idle. It was time for a rebuild, or time to look for another car.

2013 dodge ram 1500 5.7 l hemi got flactuating oil presure on low rpm


Since its a 2013.. i doubt if its a bad pump.. unless you have overheaded the engine and caused internal damage.. buy a cheap guage and install it.. replace the oil sender unit with the hose or new sender that comes with the new guage.. and find out really what your oil pressure is..

2.8l v6 in a s10 blazer. no head gasket problems thus far. wondering why my oil pressure gauge fluxuates? minor rpm change while oil pres guage does its thing why?


Oil pressure always changes with rpm.
At idle you should have around 10 psi, and it should max out at high rpm around 50 psi or so.
You not only can't have as much pressure at idle, but you don't need it either.

My brother has leant me his 1993 Ford fairmont EB11. A red light is flashing intermiitanly it looks like a fan in some kind of cylinder. Could someone tell me what it is?


  • Full instrumentation pack (four ancillary guages plus tachometer) - with volt meter & oil pressure guage.
  • Speedometer, odometer, tripmeter, fuel guage & water temperature guage standard in addition to the above.
  • WARNING LIGHTS: High beam, rear window demist on, turn signal / hazard light, alternator fail, lights on, park-brake on, washer fluid low, radiator coolant low, cruise control indicator and low oil pressure.
  • AUDIBLE WARNING CHIMES: low fuel, lights on, low alternator charge, low oil pressure, high coolant temperature and brake failure.
  • Trip Computer standard featuring fuel consumption figures, distance to empty, average speed & time display.
I found this site, no mention of the fan in a cylinder, but I'll let you figure it out. Hope this helps.

94 f350 7.3l turbo diesel looses oil pressure as rpm increase


Before you spend money on a new gauge. Get an oil pressure testing gauge for $20 , remove the oil pressure sending unit and test the oil pressure. If oil pressure at idle and 3000 rpm's is a-ok via spec's ( big money repair items) then its either the gauge a clogged or defective sending unit or the circuitry. (little money repair items)
You can also have this done at a repair shop.

My car starts up but is at a consistant 3000 RPM and flutters out


I had a Renault Espace that did a similar thing when it was cold, The ECU thought that the engine was -40* according to the Renault engineer. There are two sensors located together on our Espace, it ended up being the temperature sensor next to the coolant temperature guage sensor located on the thermostat housing. I hope this is of use to you. Ian
