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.

New holland ts 120 oil pressure to high where is the pressure relieve valve situated? the oil pump is in the dif.


There is no relief valve on the oil pump.
The valve is on a housing near the oil filter
Normal pressure with HOT oil is 15 to 20 PSI at tick over and around 60 PSI when the engine is reved up
Note oil pressure can be as high as 90 psi with engine oil cold and engine reved up

Oil pessure drops to 0 when engine warms up


it appears that the pump pressure relief valve is stuck and is not sealing off the oil system to allow pressure to build up at idle. It may be necessary to remove the oil pump and pressure relief valve for checks /repairs.

If my 2004 chevy silverado oil pressure gage stays at 80 psi could this hurt the engine


I would want to know what the actual oil pressure is. The sending unit or the gauge on the dash could have failed.
There is a pressure relief valve to prevent oil pressure from going too high, but staying at 80psi would not be good for a long time.

What is the correct oil pressure for 2000 grand jeep cherokee larado its about 75 now. i want to buy this car but worried about the oil pressure.


Normal oil pressure should be between 40 and 60 psi. A cold engine will normally have higher pressure. If you're seeing 75 psi on a warm engine I would recommend having the pressure checked with a manual gauge to verify the gauge in the Jeep is working correctly. If the gauge is correct oil viscosity may be too high (oil too thick) or there may be a problem with the oil pump pressure relief valve. If the gauge is not correct the sending unit may be at fault.

Low oil presure on gmc 5.3 manual gauge shows 0 psi at idle 20 psi driveing


Oh my!! I'm guessing the "oil pressure relief valve" is stuck open. Does the motor sound OK no knocking or ticking? The "oil pressure relief valve" is built into the oil pump.

1992 BONNENILLE OIL PRESSURE READS PAST TOP GAUGE PRESSURE


Sounds like the pump pressure relief is gummed up or faulty. Try putting in a quart of marvel oil. If it does not get better in a couple of days, you may need to take the pump out and check it. Depending upon what engine you have, some have the pump located in the timing case cover...on those it maybe possible to remove and clean the relief. Get a manual and check to see where yours is located.
Avoid high rpm running while you have this problem as your oil filter can split open and you will quickly loose your engine oil.

1998 toyota camry,4,cylinder, 5 speed


it sounds like your oil pressure sending unit may be plugged by whatever took your pressure down to 5-8 psi the first time. this is extremely low pressure as i am sure you know but at 30 psi your light should go off i would replace the sending unit if your oil pressure is holding 30
