Question about 1995 Honda Passport
What is normal oil pressure at idle on this motor?
It has oil pressure gauge and it has 15 psi at idle currently.
When I rev it up pressure max out at 55-75 psi with 3000 RPM is this normal or not?
i would check the oil plug screw seal first before i would do the valve solenoid/pressure switch. also, if the oil plug screw seal is fine and tightly screwed in, it may just be the switch seal itself.

It could be that during the changing of the gaskets that some debris may have ended up in the oil passages in the heads slowing the flow of the returning oil. Or could be the oil pressure unit itself.

my car did the same thing the problem was a $14 washer inside the oil filter fitting on the car you have to pull the filter conection off (from the car) bit of an *** around but pretty simple.

The unit it self is leaking, the housing it made of metal and the center where the wire is made of plastic and after a few years from the heat of the oil will crack the plastic, causing it to leak slow at first then get to the stage where it will drain the oil faster then you can make it around the block. Replace the unit as soon as you can, good luck and hope this helps.
