Yes I believe there is!! I can't think of it right off hand.I will look it up and get back to you. Also have you checked to see if your spark plug seals are worn. I am replacing mine now.I had an issue with the engine light coming on at certain revs!!!

Hi I have a 2002 pontiac sunfire 2.2 vin 4 and my oil light comes on at idle and goes off when i accelerate I have changed oil oil filter and pump..can it be the crank bearings going bad?


Hello Jason, I suggest you install an auxiliary oil pressure gauge to see what you have for oil pressure. Your problem might be as simple as a bad oil sending unit.

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.

Fuel pressure should be 55-62 PSI. I encounter many of these with low fuel pressure and giving that rough idle and extended cranking time. Due to the type of fuel pum p you may have to cycle the switch to obtain normal fuel prssure. Some vehicle needs to be cranking before fuel pressure is obtained.

OIL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 70 PSI@4000 RPM 30 PSI AT IDLING. MAKE SURE OIL FILTER AND OIL BEEN CHANGED AND MAKE SURE OIL LEVEL NOT LOW.AND YOU USE THE RIGHT OIL.IF ALL IS GOOD OIL SENDING UNIT COULD BE BAD.

Had new motor put in chevy truck and oil pressure runs below 30ps


At 2000 RPM a new GM engine should be close to 45 psi for oil pressure. It'll drop to mid or high 30's at idle. Hope this helps.

Check fuel pressure wit a guage at schrader valve on fuel rail with key on and engine not running. The pressure needs to be 55 to 61 PSI. If it is less than 55 PSI, replace the fuel pump in gas tank and fuel filter. If it is more than 61 PSI, replace fuel pressure regulator.

Oil Pressure


please befor you destroy the engine , have an oil pressure gage installed where your sending unit is to be sure you have enough oil pressure to even be driving the truck at all. on a hot motor at idle you should have at least 15 psi. at 2000 rpm you could have as much as 60 psi
