Oil pressure drops when im at lights,but goes back up when i go,no knocking noises,n regular oil changes,what should i do


First hook up a mechanical pressure gauge to get a true reading--you may just have a bad sender. If pressure is less than 10 to 15 psi at hot dead idle, tell us how many miles on engine--what oil you are using--how often you change it. I have sometimes gone up one notch on thickness of oil on worn engines and run them many more miles.

What are the output specifications for the oil pressure transmitter (it's a 2-wire sensor)in a 2001 Bentley Arnage? (I need the mA outputs corresponding to various oil pressures, at say, 10psi, 20psi,


the oil pressure hot on your test gauge will be below recommended pressure necessary for the proper lubrication of the engine . The control module as you say will be set higher to notify you before that pressure is reached so that there is sufficient time to shut down the engine

IT IDLES DOWN TO WERE I HAVE TO MASH THE GAS AND BRAKES WHEN I COME TO A STOP SIGN..AND ITS RUNNING HOT


I had somewhat the same problem early this year. My trusty mechanic surprised me by saying that the injector lines were dirty. It surprised me because I had been pretty faithful in putting injector cleaner in the gas tank on each oil change.

Oil gage goes and comes with reading


The parking brake is near a large bundle of wires, if the bundle is touching the brake arm it may have damage, use wire ties and tie it out of the way of the park brake.

How do I check and possibly replace the engine oil pressure sensor in a 2006 GMC Envoy Denali?


Oil Pressure Test Check for proper oil pressure at the sending unit passage with an externally mounted mechanical oil pressure gauge. A tachometer may also be needed, as some specifications may require running the engine at a specific RPM.
  1. While the engine is cold, locate and remove the oil pressure sending unit.
  2. Following the manufacturer's instructions, connect a mechanical oil pressure gauge and, if necessary, a tachometer to the engine.
  3. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
  4. Note and record the oil pressure reading when the engine is cold. The engine may need to run at a specified RPM, if so check the vehicle's specification.
  5. Run the engine until normal operating temperature is reached.
  6. Check the oil pressure reading again with the engine hot and record the value. Turn off the engine.
Compare the hot oil pressure reading to the specification. If the reading is low, check the cold pressure reading against the specification. If the cold pressure is well above the specification, and the hot reading was lower than the specification, the engine may have the wrong viscosity oil. Change the oil, making sure to use the proper grade and quantity, and then repeat the test.
Low oil pressure readings could be attributed to internal component wear, pump related problems, a low oil level, or oil viscosity that is too low. High oil pressure readings could be caused by an overfilled crankcase, too high of an oil viscosity or a faulty pressure relief valve.

Where is the oil pressure sensor located on a 1996 murcury cougar


Look for the oil pressure sending unit on the block or the cylinder head on the V-6 or V-8 models. --- OIL PRESSURE TEST Check for proper oil pressure at the sending unit passage with an externally mounted mechanical oil pressure gauge (as opposed to relying on a factory installed dash-mounted gauge). A tachometer may also be needed, as some specifications may require running the engine at a specific rpm.
  1. With the engine cold, locate and remove the oil pressure sending unit.
  2. Following the manufacturer's instructions, connect a mechanical oil pressure gauge and, if necessary, a tachometer to the engine.
  3. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
  4. Check the oil pressure reading when cold and record the number. You may need to run the engine at a specified rpm, so check the specifications.
  5. Run the engine until normal operating temperature is reached (upper radiator hose will feel warm).
  6. Check the oil pressure reading again with the engine hot and record the number. Turn the engine OFF.
  7. Compare your hot oil pressure reading to specification. If the reading is low, check the cold pressure reading against the chart. If the cold pressure is well above the specification, and the hot reading was lower than the specification, you may have the wrong viscosity oil in the engine. Change the oil, making sure to use the proper grade and quantity, then repeat the test. Low oil pressure readings could be attributed to internal component wear, pump related problems, a low oil level, or oil viscosity that is too low. High oil pressure readings could be caused by an overfilled crankcase, too high of an oil viscosity or a faulty pressure relief valve.

Oil gauge goes up and down.


If grounding the dash does not work, try putting a mechanical gauge on it and reading actual oil pressure. Pressure does change while driving, but should not wander. With mechanical gauge, check that running hot at idle (in gear if automatic) pressure should not drop lower than 15psi (I'd rather see 20) High reading should be around 40 -50 but no higher.Low pressure indicates a loss of supply or bad bearing on the crankshaft, high pressure may be caused by sticking pressure relief or restriction in an oil passage.

'oil pressure gauge


Replace the useless oil pressure sending unit with one from a early year such as 1986 .connect only the wire to the oil light.if you want a pressure gauge install an after market one..The stupid factory sending units can not rear pressure under 40lbs.at less than 40psi the light is on and the gauge reads 0 good luck carl

Oil gauge reading on my dash


Any where from a quarter to half way is fine. After this the oil presser is getting to high. be sure you run 10-30 in the winter and do a oil change in spring time to 10-40 . oil will thin in hot temp. thus using a thicker oil like 10-40 in the summer will help keep oil presser down .
