OIL PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE

It was a couple of days ago when the oil pressure went to 0 psi and then went to the normal position,and it stayed like that for too days,at the present time everything is normal, i checked the oil level it,s ok, no oil leaks,oil sender unit seems ok it,s not leaking, I,m assuming it might be in the oil pressure relief valve, i have a 4.7 V8 and i see that there is alot of people having the same problum, and the temp that day wes at -20 for a three days, i,m thing that the pressure relief valve was sticking, is this possible.

    Maybe it,s the pressure relief valve causing this problum, lets assume for a moment it is, what do we do? Well lets see.



    1-lets start by cleaning the internal parts, ? lets assume for a moment that there is no damage done to the engine,

    2-We know that oil change might help,or will it?

    3-How do we clean INSIDE the engine without taking the engine apart?

    4-What can we ADD to the OIL to CLEAN the interal PARTS?

    5-If we added a engine cleaning solivent to the oil and drove for about 30min what would happen?

    6-Yah!! Lets give it a internal cleaning MAYBE thats all it needs.



    Last Note,

    Think before you Spend a LOT of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$



    Sorry about the Spelling, but i think you get the idea.Paul

If cleaning the engine does not work, replace the oil press. sending unit. These senders on Jeeps have had a history of problems where they will work one day and not the next day.

My 2005 nissan titan oil pressure gauge just jumped to high. I turned the motor off and turned the key on without starting the motor and it went to normal. Soon as I starred the motor, it jumped right back...


When you say it was "normal" with the engine off and the key on, do you mean normal as 40-50 psi, or normal, as 0 psi since the engine was off and there should be no oil pressure? This is important because if you are reading 40-50 psi with the engine off, it is not surprising that the gauge goes "too high" once you start the engine. If the gauge is at 40-50 psi with the engine off and the key on, then there is a problem with the gauge or the sensor. It is not an overpressure issue. As long as the engine seems to be running normally otherwise and is not clacking internally or other such things that would indicate oil pressure issues, I would feel safe using the vehicle until I could have the oil pressure circuit diagnosed and repaired.

While driving my chev 454 truck the oil pressure went to 0 psi


A leaking filter and oil pressure switch would cause the lack of oil pressure. Does the oil light work and does it go out now you have changed these parts. It only needs approx 8 psi to put the light out, the engine should run at approx 40 psi at 2000 rpm.

Oil pressure gauge reading zero


check the oil pressure first, it should read around 10 to 14 psi. If pressure is inside the range then your pressure sensor is bad. If lower or reads 0 psi your got a engine problem, further diagnosis needed. Good luck.

Oil pressure guage stays at 40 psi on ign/engine shut down, but drops to 0 psi when ign is turned back on, and then on starting of engine operates normally... What's up ???


the oil pressure gauge only gets a reading when the engine is runningas the oil is being curculated. when you shut the vehicle off it should go back to zero and be there until the vehicle cranks back up. i hope this helps

Sounds like there is an oil pressure problem. Now this can be due to several factors. 1. low oil level in car
2. bad oil pump
3.bad oil pressure switch /sending unit
4. last but not least check oil filter and make sure its not clogged.
worn engine main/connecting rod bearings.
have pressure checked with a manual guage at oil pressure switch for the correct pressure. If that's good then the switch is bad and problem solved.
if it low then you will have to check pump and bearings. Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA

Oil pressure gauge stays at top, about 80 psi, is this normal


80 is on the high side for those... possibly a sending unit issue

No compression in one cylinder


Timing belt slipped around cam pulley. Take off your timing belt cover and check the position. This would explain misfiring and compression loss. Stretched belt or missing cogs in belt likely culprit.
