    Yes it will be higher at start up owing to the oil being thicker .change the oil every 5000miles with a oil filter every third oil change and i think this will cure it use a 10/40 oil for diesel and petrol engines

Oil filter seal keeps pop in out when I start the car 1999 Buick regal 6 cyl


The only time I've ever seen an oil filter gasket pop out on startup is when the gasket from the old filter had stuck on and the filter was thus installed with two gaskets. If that isn't the problem, It sounds like the oil pressure bypass valve is stuck and the pressure is building WAY too high. If you have an oil pressure guage, it would read very high.

Oil pressure is still reading high even though I just changed the filter and oil.


A high oil pressure reading is a good thing, low oil pressure is something to worry about. Normally with a cold start, your oil pressure will remain high until the engine has reached operating temperature, then drop a bit, but again, high oil pressure readings are a good sign of a healthy engine. One other factor to consider is the viscosity of your oil, if your engine uses 5w30 and you switch it to a higher viscosity such as 10w40, you may also see higher oil pressure readings, so be sure you are using the correct oil for your vehicle. I hope this has helped you! :)

I have a 1992 chevy s10 pickup. At startup the oil filter comes off and all the oil runs out. any idea whats wrong.


the high pressure relief valve in the oil pump may be stuck. Be sure to use the correct weight oil (5 or 10w30) try it again, if it blows off, the valve is stuck, and disassembly may be required.

I've been experincing high oil pressure when i start my car then the oil pressure drops to normal after a couple of minutes, today it acted like it didn't want to start like it was bound up what would...


A high oil pressure reading at startup is completely normal until the oil reaches operating temperature it is much thicker. However, if you've added any type of oil treatment additives you may have overdone it and have to change your oil. Thank you, Dana

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L Oil gauge reading very high


If the weather in your area is colder than normal, your startup oil pressure will reflect this, essentially because it is much thicker when very cold. This high reading should drop to "normal" once it reaches operating temperature. This condition can also be caused by a sticking pressure relief in the oil pump, usually caused by sludge inside the engine. If you regularly maintain your vehicle and use good quality oil, this should not happen. The oil pressure sending unit is also suspect, but in your case, I would not put it at the front of the list. If oil is close to "change time" consider using a good synthetic oil (synthetics flow better at extreme temps) or using a 5W anything oil during winter months. (see manufacturers specs)

7.3 liter will not start.


yes they are you stated that you have mech oil pressure did you install a gauge?. this is a fuel line pressure sensor on the right bank at the frt of the head this sensor is rail pressure that high pressure oil pump creates check you pressure there that will elimnate that head the other side is a little more of a pain to test. one other thing to keep in mind is that the cranking speed is very important, and have you checked the oil level on a 7.3 deisel if you are more than 3 qaurts low on oil you will trap air in the high pressure pump. this will cause a hard start our even a no start

Soulds like valve clicking noise for about a sec during startup the goes away. when I changed the oil and filter I heard the same thing once I started the engine to let oil circulate through engine


It's normal. When the car has sat, the oil drains down to the pan. On startup, you're starting an engine with no oil pressure (any car is like this), but once the pressure pumps up after a second or two, the noise goes away. Don't worry about this - it's normal.
