Question about 1997 Infiniti.5 Q45

1 Answer

Checked oil pressure with guage

The pressure started at 60lbs and started to drop slowly as the motor warmed up. The pressure dropped below 15lbs and as the pressure dropped I heard the valves tapping I shut down the motor. I then stared the motor back up right away the pressure was back up to 60lbs again but dropped really fast. I also noticed some dirt floating out of oil sending tap. Did anybody run into this problem ?

Dear Bill, You will need to find a mechanic who can remove the oil pressure sending unit from the engine block and insert a "real" oil pressure guage to tell if you really have a problem or not. Lots of factory dashboard guages are not very accurate over time. If you really do have that low of oil pressure, you need to address that quickly.

2004 Grand Cherokee: oil pressure fluctuates


if you know for certain that the sending unit is correct and the guage is accurate, then yiu may have big problems.....while the engine is running open the oil filler hole.. is everything wet with oil? or does it look dry or just a little lubed? you can allways install an aftermarket oil pressure guage(crappy tire) if you get the same results with that then you may have a week oil pump....worst case scenerio... need an engine rebuild as the moter may have wear issues.does the pressure slowly drop as the motor warms up? at idle ? does it jump up when you step on the gas?
